Love Tangles

Love Tangles

A Feature film by Olivier Péray

Produced by K'ien Productions

Release in France : 11/03/1998


    Lionel has a way with women. His sexual exploits make his friends jealous. One of them, Alain, challenges him to seduce a beautiful woman picked at random, fall in love with her and spend a night with her — but abstain from making love. Claire is the chosen victim. Behind Claire’s prim and proper façade there lurks a vigorous, demanding sexuality in full bloom. The self-control that Lionel struggles to maintain to win his bet begins to intrigue her. She decides to take the offensive. As Alain tells it to young Sophie on a café terrace three years later, the cautionary tale of Lionel affably gives the lie to a range of popular prejudices about virility and male sexuality.

    To tell a story about female desire and male sexual fragility, I felt I had to take a humorous line, so long as I stayed within the bounds of credibility and made sure that the characters never appeared artificial. We’re a long way from the belly-laughs that some comedies provoke, but we’re also far from opposite extreme of the serious film with a message. Ideally, I would like people to feel that “Love Tangles” is a delicate mixture of emotion and funniness, depth and lightness — a film that has something to say but says it with a smile. (Eric Assous, co-scriptwriter - excerpt from press kit)
