Games of Love and Chance

Games of Love and Chance ★★ L'esquive 2003

Centered around North African immigrant Krimo (Elkharraz), a closed-up teenager living in a Paris suburb whose emotional walls force girlfriend Magali (Ganito) to dump him. He quickly finds a new love interest in the extroverted Lydia (Forestier) and pushes his way into a school play to be near her. The camera provides a close view of the many effusive confrontations between the teenaged cast, all of whom are played by acting neophyte residents of the working class suburb where the film is set. Many of the themes explored are universal to the teen movie genre. This film, Kechiche's second effort, has been an award-winning hit in France. 119m/C DVD . FR Osman Elkharraz, Sara Forestier, Sabrina Ouazani, Nanou Benhamou, Aurelie Ganito, Rachid Hami; D: Abdellatif Kechiche; W: Abdellatif Kechiche; C: Lubomir Bakchev.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
