Love Me

Reality and fantasy are confusingly intertwined in this striking but self-indulgent drama about a young schizophrenic. Gabrielle (Kiberlain), unemployed and eking out an existence in a small seaside town, has a huge crush on Lennox (Hallyday), a fading rock star who specialises in Elvis songs. We follow her to the US, where she takes a job as a waitress, tries to insinuate herself into Lennox's life, and hangs out in smoky bars. The whole American jaunt seems to be a figment of her imagination. To confuse matters further, we're presented with another character (Salomé Stévenin) who's supposed to be Gabrielle as a teenager. Masson has undoubted visual flair, but her attempts at combining film noir, melodrama and social realism in one unwieldy package are disorienting. She claims she wanted to induce a kind of vertigo in viewers - she risks baffling them instead.
