Storyline

Recently broken up and barely enduring a dreary winter, gay Parisian Jérôme Beaunez impulsively books a solo Christmas vacation to Los Angeles. While there he meets some colorful locals and pursues a dormant desire to become a movie star - but never can quite put the past behind him. In this meditation on love and narcissism across continents, Jérôme goes far in the sun-drenched City of Angels but ultimately arrives at an old Hollywood maxim: there's no place like home.

Hollywood, do I love you?
15 February 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a gay French man trying to heal his heartbreak by going to Hollywood to become an actor.

"Hollywood, Je T'aime" is not just a lighthearted colourful popcorn comedy that the cover suggests. There is humour but also some food for thought. It looks at a heartbroken guy's disillusionment with the Hollywood glamour, and ultimately finds out the hard way that streets in Hollywood are not paved with gold. He has to answer the question, whether he loves Hollywood or not.

Acting wise, Chad Allen does a great job as a HIV positive drug dealer, while Eric Debets is memorable as a person who cannot act in the audition scene. If the editing is tighter, then "Hollywood, Je T'aime" would have been even more enjoyable.
