Dites-Lui Que Je L'Aime Movie Review

miou claude depardieu miller

Dites-Lui Que Je L'Aime is a disappointing second film by Claude Miller, who made such a promising debut with 1976's The Best Way. Dites-Lui… seems to have been crafted by a self-indulgent film student. Based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, the plot revolves around a completely unsympathetic accountant (listlessly played by Gerard Depardieu), who pursues former girlfriend Dominique Laffin, now a married mother. Meanwhile, gorgeous masochist Miou-Miou pursues Depardieu, and a married drip subsequently pursues Miou-Miou. For 107 minutes, all the characters throw each other around and yell a lot. The best moment occurs when Gerard Depardieu kicks in a television set while Paul Anka is singing, which gives you some idea how droll the rest of this flick is. AKA:This Sweet Sickness; Tell Her I Love Her.

1977 107m/C FR Gerard Depardieu, Miou-Miou, Dominique Laffin, Claude Pieplu, Christian Clavier, Jacques Denis, Josiane Balasko, Veronique Silver, Jacqueline Jeanne, Michel Such; D: Claude Miller; W: Claude Miller, Luc Beraud; C: Pierre Lhomme. VHS
