Presented in competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival, “L’Amour ouf” is Gilles Lellouche’s new bet with Adèle Exarchopoulos and François Civil in the cast. Did the film appeal to festival-goers? A quick overview.

It is the most ambitious French film of the 2024 cinema year and the most expensive too – more than 35 million euros budget. After the success of Le Grand bain, Gilles Lellouche returns as director with L’Amour ouf and brings together Adèle Exarchopoulos and François Civil on screen.

First presented as a musical, the film is above all an epic romance spanning several years with dance numbers choreographed by La Horde, a collective which has notably worked with Madonna and Christine and the Queens.

The synopsis of this crazy project is as follows: “Jackie and Clotaire fall madly in love in their town in the north of France. She is rather crazy but studious, he is a little bandit and, if life is going to put their romance to the test, nothing seems to be able to separate them.”

Alongside the two main actors, we find an explosive cast: Alain Chabat, Raphaël Quenard, Jean-Pascal Zadi, Benoît Poelvoorde, Vincent Lacoste and Elodie Bouchez. Presented in competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival, festival-goers expressed their feelings.

What did the festival-goers think?

Not really a musical, more of an epic romance like Romeo + Juliet. Cinematically spectacular but extremely cheesy, and the story is so clichéd and derivative that it doesn’t make any of it exciting. Another huge disappointment at #Cannes2024 this year. Too bad.

I thoroughly enjoyed “L’Amour Ouf”, a truly epic love story that manages to impressively maintain its momentum throughout a massive runtime thanks to a kinetic visual style and choice collection really impressive music. Deeply moving, painfully sincere. A big moment.”

L’Amour ouf, in cinemas on October 16.

The 77th Cannes Film Festival takes place from May 14 to 25, 2024.
