I Hate Love

A Feature film by Laurence Ferreira Barbosa

Produced by Gemini Films

Release in France : 11/06/1997


    Paris in August. A woman on a scooter. Her name : Annie Simonin. She's a doctor, a GP. Ever elegant, in suit and high-heels, she criss-crosses the 13th district of Paris on home visits. On her scooter, she has time to daydream. And in her dreams she is always more brilliant, more passionate in life and in love. Yet she valiantly does battle with a harsh everyday reality. As a doctor, she give in, neither to a hypochondriac persecutor, Richard Piotr, nor to Laurent Blondel, a young man with AIDS who's given up on life, nor even to the anguish of the wife of a cancer victim whose days are numbered. And when the real troubles start, she tries desperately to find a solution to her problems, in real life, but also in her dreams.

    "It sometimes happens in life that people live in danger of their lives. This film has two or three, even three or four, things to say on this matter...
    - That love can be scary, even very scary.
    - That the fear of love is akin to the fear of death (a question of pain).
    - That love (which is not always the feeling one thinks it is) is essential if one is to brave fear and death.
    In order to broach these two or three, even three or four, serious matters, this film resorts to methods that are particular, complicated, tortuous, or to be more precise, funny.
