Anaïs in Love, a French film, tells the story of a somewhat chaotic young woman and her journey through various love woes.

Anaïs in Love review

It’s not a particularly complicated story, but the director does make it clear that relationships are inherently complex, and that’s something the film aspires to explore. Whether Anaïs is portrayed as a free-spirited person or a home wrecker is up to the audience to decide, but there’s plenty of time in the film for everyone to draw their own conclusions.

As for whether this movie is for you, it all depends on whether you like slow romance. Anaïs in Love is a slow-burning story about the ups and downs of love. The film is more about a journey, where a person moves through relationships and love that don’t quite work for him until he finally finds the one that works for him, and the film allows the journey to unfold at a fairly well-balanced rhythm throughout the narrative.

As such, this movie may not be for everyone, and those who seem more punchy may be disappointed. However, those viewers who are receptive to the whole thing, will certainly accept this.

In this film, the actress Anaïs Demoustier, who plays Anaïs, keeps an interesting vibe. Demoustier had the opportunity to show a (sort of) careless young woman, and Demoustier’s performance felt so real, unbelievable, we’ve all met someone like Anaïs.

Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, who plays an older beauty named Emilie in the film, caught Anaïs’s attention. Valeria Bruni Tedeschi brings a certain confidence and composure to the role, making it a perfect casting.

My only complaint is that I would have liked to see more of these two actresses together. The screen comes alive when they share scenes together, so unfortunately it took a while to bring Emily into the story. But that’s just a small issue, and it didn’t affect the movie. I guess I just want more.

Acting aside, Anaïs in Love is beautifully shot, with a touch of humor and wisecracks in all the right places. The film also offers an interesting relationship and explores the many facets of love, from going through the motions and making bad decisions to falling for someone.

For the most part, I found Anaïs in Love/Les Amours d’Anaïs to be a rather enjoyable film. I can’t say it wowed me at all times, but it had some great things about it that fascinated me.

Ultimately, I believe that Anaïs in Love conveys the story it was originally intended to tell, and it does so through its focus on characters and themes. So, while the movie isn’t particularly magical, it’s definitely endearing, and that works for me.
