Storyline

The Art of Love (L'art d'aimer) is composed of several chapters following several Parisian couples. Isabelle (Julie Depardieu) has not had sex in a year. She declines an offer from her friend Zoé (Pascale Arbillot) to "borrow" her husband and instead winds up impersonating Amélie (Judith Godrèche), another friend who cannot bring herself to sleep with her buddy, Boris (Laurent Stocker). The singleton Achille (François Cluzet) thinks his prayers have been answered when his svelte new neighbor (Frédérique Bel) knocks on his door wearing a negligee and suggests they have an affair. In another chapter, a middle-aged couple's marriage is threatened when wife Emmanuelle (Ariane Ascaride) finds herself lusting after every attractive man she lays eyes upon and a pair of young lovers (Elodie Navarre and Gaspard Ulliel) discover the pangs of jealousy.

fun to laugh at, but not a good film at all
19 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I saw the German version in a sneak preview tonight and honestly wasn't sure it wasn't a porno for about 10 minutes. The dialogs are extremely stupid and poorly dubbed (both sync and choice of voices). I also couldn't quite tell whether it was supposed to be a comedy or if the makers actually tried to make a love flick, which is pretty sad. I read on here that it was in fact supposed to be a comedy, but I still don't really see it. Sure, everyone in the theater was laughing so hard it hurt at some points, but only because the movie seemed so desperate. Hopefully, this was all the works of some really bad dubbing company and the original meaning and witty jokes of an originally brilliant movie just got lost in translation - but somehow I doubt that.
