I Love You, I Love You Not
Hot young stars Claire Danes (LES MISERABLES, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO + JULIET) and Jude Law (COLD MOUNTAIN, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY) heat up the screen in this passionate story about fitting in ... and falling in love! Head-turning cute but painfully shy and self-conscious, Daisy (Danes) feels like a complete outsider at her stuffy New York prep school. So when she catches the eye of the coolest guy in school, Daisy is totally psyched ... but afraid that opening up too much might blow it for her. Also starring legendary Jeanne Moreau (EVER AFTER, THE SUMMER HOUSE), I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU NOT is the film that proves dreams worth having are definitely worth wishing for!

Her parents are away on a vacation and have left her with her grandmother who is an accepting, loving person, who helps her accept her identity. One great scene, is when Danes, opens to her grandmother and begins to trust another human beng, by revealing what she thinks about sex. Jude Law is okay in his role, but the two women, Claire Danes and Jeanne Moreau, really stand out in this one. Sometimes I wonder if Claire was reading lots of Sylvia Plath for inspiration for at times the movie feels like an untold part of Plath's biography, a missing link, as it were, though it is not at all intended that way. Some of the scenes may not have the smoothest transition. Perhaps the director didn't quite know what was to be done with Jude Law's character, whether to make him a caring human baing or a shallow person who acts as though he has no problems of his own, but perhaps that's part of being a teenager.
It was superb, however in the parallel in the heroine's mind between her life and grandmother's. I gave it five stars for the climax when heroine faces the angel of death and the acting by two female leads. Good as a suspense/romance film, as well.
I'd suggest it to anyone who is a fan of Claire Danes or Jude Law. Or just a good movie.
Jude Law is the 'it' boy while Danes is the wallflower he is intrigued by but dissapointed to learn that no matter how charming he is, she is always going to be herself. Her intense, poetic and mysteriously sad self.
The back of the box really gave no indication of what this story was really about, which was kind of nice, I might not have picked it up, but it was compeltely missleading!
I really enjoyed this movie, and the way it interplayed Daisy's life with her grandmother's experience with being a German Jew during Hitler's reign. I wouldn't call it sad, but a very contemplative movie.
It would have been nice to see Law's character come to some sort of enlightenment, but all in all it was satisfying, because he isn't the focus. The focus is between these two strong, surviving women, and their relationship stands the test of the movie. Which I applaud completely.
