Part romantic comedy and part black comedy, director Yann Samuell’s 2003 feature film début Jeux d’Enfants (Love Me if You Dare) follows the exploits of two young would-be lovers as they go from childhood to adulthood with themselves as the greatest hurdle to their own happiness. Julien and Sophie first meet at the age of eight when both are undergoing great trauma: Julien is watching his mother die and Sophie has become the focus of intense hazing at the hands of some fellow schoolmates. On one fateful day, Julien decides to stick up for Sophie and pulls a practical joke on her tormentors. Henceforth, the two embark on a close friendship that revolves around daring each other to pull increasingly audacious practical jokes, and not on the seemingly obvious intimate relationship they seem dangerously close to discovering at any moment. Jeux d’Enfants was selected for inclusion into the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival as well as that same year’s Telluride International Film Festival.
