I LOVE THIS MOVIE: "Jeux d'enfants" (2003)

"Good old Sophie! We're back in the game! Pure, raw, explosive pleasure! Better than drugs, better than smack. Better than dope-coke-crack-fix-shit-shoot-sniff-ganja-marijuana-blotter-acid-ecstasy! Better than sex, head, 69, orgies, masturbation, tantrism, Kama Sutra or Thai doggy-style! Better than banana milkshakes! Better than George Lucas’ trilogy, the Muppets and 2001! Better than Emma Peel, Marilyn, Lara Croft, and Cindy Crawford’s beauty mark! Better than the B-side of Abbey Road. Better than Hendrix, the first man on the moon, Space Mountain, Santa Claus, Bill Gates’ fortune, the Dalai Lama, Lazarus raised from the dead, Schwarzenegger’s testosterone shots, Pam Anderson’s lips, Woodstock, raves. Better than de Sade, Rimbaud, Morrison and Castaneda. Better than freedom, better than life!"
featuring real-life couple Guillaumet Canet & Marion Cotillard ~ Brangelina eat your hearts out!  *swoon*

  • The film is dedicated to director Yann Samuell's parents-in-law Gerard and Sonia. Gerard and Sonia lent their house to Yann Samuell while he was writing the screenplay. The two were killed in a car crash a week before the film was released.
  • The scene in which Julien and Sophie are immersed in cement was filmed by immersing Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet in apple sauce.
  • When Julien is at the cemetery on the day after which he and Sophie haven't seen each other for ten years, he wishes Sophie would just appear and sing "La Vie en Rose", a song by Édith Piaf. Marion Cotillard (Sophie) would later win an Academy Award for playing Piaf in La môme (2007).
