Je Vous Aime (English title I Love You All) is a 1980 French romantic comedy film directed by Claude Berri. Its cast comprises notable actors and actresses like Jean Louis Trintignant, Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu and Serge Gainsbourg. It was first released in 1980 and it was shown in the US in 1981.[1]


Alice, a young business woman, struggles to find her life partner, a task she constantly fails to accomplish. As she and Claude are about to break up, she starts reminiscing about her past relationships. One night she invites her ex-lovers for dinner: Simon, an irascible singer who involves her in his artistic endeavors and with whom she constantly fights; Patrick, a young saxophone player who naively conquers her heart with his doe-eyed glance while accompanying one of Simon's songs; Julien, a tame and shy man who falls for Alice while helping her push her stalled car to a roadside during a thunderstorm. A rather strange journey through her past begins, a journey made of laughs, bitter memories and, ultimately, the confirmation of why she and they are no longer together.

Additional information[edit]

Serge Gainsbourg wrote the music score for the movie. Noteworthy is his song Dieu est un fumeur de havanes, which he duets with Deneuve in one of the scenes.[3]
