Love, etc.

Love, etc. ★★ 1996

Another messy romantic triangle played for both comedy and tragedy. Shy, thirtysomething bank employee Benoit (Attal) takes out a personal ad, but supplies a picture of his egocentric best friend Pierre (Berling) instead of his own. He meets twentysomething art restorer Marie (Gainsbourg) and, despite the deception and the fact that she's not swept away by romantic passion, Marie marries him. Then Benoit discovers that Pierre thinks he's in love with Marie and has decided to win her away—and she's torn by the attention. Based on the novel “Taking It Over” by Julian Barnes. French with subtitles. 105m/C VHS, DVD . FR Charlotte Gainsbourg, Yvan Attal, Charles Berling; D: Marion Vernoux; W: Marion Vernoux, Dodine Herry; C: Eric Gautier; M: Leonard Cohen, Alexandre Desplat.

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.
