Le Nom Des Gens (The Names of Love) is a politically infused, dark, witty romantic comedy about a young girl, Bahia, who seduces and sleeps with extremely right wing in order to ‘convert’ them so to speak. She then meets Arthur Martin who she eventually discovers is anything but ordinary or in need of conversion. There’s a lot of discussion in the film about religion, the holocaust, the French occupation of Libya and being Arab or any other kind of immigrant in France.
74% Fresh (RT): I don’t know who wouldn’t like this movie! It’s laugh out loud hilarious at some points, it’s very clever (not a mindless watch) which is a nice change for a romantic comedy which usually sticks to the same formula. The techniques used by the director add a very artistic and somewhat bohemian touch to the movie which I really enjoyed. I recommend this to EVERYONE!
