Storyline

Paris, during the summer, Annie, a young single doctor, does not have many patients. Her consulting-room is empty, so is her life. But soon two of them are going to worry her. Lucas suffers from AIDS, but refuses to be cured, what Annie can not understand. There is also Richard, an actor, they first met at a dinner, and now he is coming at her office, more and more often, and seems paranoid... He must be one of those doctor's nightmares, a persecuting hypochondriac... Written by Yepok

doesn't quite have the power

excerpt, full review at my location.

J'ai Horreur de L'amour is an entanglement of genres and ideas. It dances over crossed paths of comedy and tragedy; it casts a shadow over its ironic humour with a touch of death and homicidal madness. Director Laurence Ferreira Barbosa introduces us to her talents at portraying the eccentricities of people in this obscure take on a skewed love triangle, with protagonist Annie becoming involved in various relationships which all have sinister undertones.

J'ai Horreur de L'amour is an intriguing and honest exploration of death, madness and relationships. The subject of AIDS underpins the entire film, and yet it is not the focal point, allowing room to show off Barbosa's excellence at writing dry comedy. However, the film's potential as a serious statement remains hindered by its fantastic humour, and vice versa. J'ai Horreur de L'amour is by no means a failure; but the film as a whole doesn't quite have the power to become a masterpiece.
