Earth, water, and fire
31 December 2007 | by richard_sleboeSee all my reviews

Treading in the footsteps of "Mr Brooks" and "Sleuth", "Could This Be Love?" is this year's second movie about both ceramic glazing and universal remote controls. Like Kevin Costner's character in "Mr Brooks", Elsa (Sandrine Bonnaire) is a strong-willed type with a passion for pottery. Like Michael Caine's character in "Sleuth", Lucas (Vincent Lindon) tries and fails to shield himself from the world with the help of remote-controlled gadgetry. It's not at all clear what they see in each other, but what the hack. Elsa is a bit too sure of herself for a struggling artist, but her sumo wrestler friend Yakeshi (Brian Bigg) adds a refreshing, if goofy touch of the surreal. Newcomer Clémentine Poidatz is pretty cute in the part of Elsa's cousin Marina. Guest appearance by Venantino Venantini in the part of the Della Ponte, the pope of pottery.
