It’s not love, but that’s the point
I agree with another reviewer that love is not the real subject of the film. The characters think they’re feeling love, and they’re certainly looking for love, but in such a shallow and conniving way they’re incapable of getting beyond mere sensuality at best. This is a film which starts out superficially, as superficial as its characters. Their lack of depth is underlined by the interviews of more interesting people that we would almost rather be following, but we’re stuck with this trio of narcissists trying to impress each other through attitude, clothes, and money– each locked within his competitive self and each masturbating in his or her own way. The director’s own vanity fits in perfectly with his fetishist approach, the Wong Kar Wai-like sensual slow-motion to heighten gesture and make us take a long hard look at these high-strung game players.
The viewer must be patient and wait for the second part when the film, in dealing with the repercussions from the narcissism of the first part, takes on depth. It is during the last twenty minutes that the actor/director succeeds in dealing with real emotions, not the imitation ones of the first half. Now a new tension sets in that builds to its vociferous climax where the actors are required to go beyond what they have demonstrated up to this point. Watching these neurotic Montréalians (when they finally grow up, they can be the manic-depressive characters in a Denys Arcand film), the viewer goes through the gamut of his or her own memories of attraction and rejection, bouncing around like the ping-pong balls that the expressive actors represent in their own attraction/flirtation/appeasement fluctuations. In fact, the more the film is watched with introspection, the more relevant it becomes.
Manipulation in Grand scale
Which persons are the most evil? High on that list are those who force others to fall in love with them; just for fun, just for the game.
We meet two friends here. The boy is gay and the girl is straight and they are very close. Then, this wonderboy arrives and they both fall in love. It’s not just any crush, it’s probably the love of their lives. But wonderboy manipulates and drives them to become enemies to the level of physical violence. Just for fun.
It sounds like a big tragedy, but anyway you never have that feeling. The couple is people of the world and you’re never really worried. The touch is somewhat too light here.
