The Names of Love Exclusive Poster Premiere

The Names of Love Exclusive Poster Premiere

May 27, 2011

Movies.com is happy to bring you the premiere of the US poster for Michel Leclerc's romantic comedy The Names of Love, which has been touring the world over the last few months to plenty of critical acclaim (it just won Cesar Awards, AKA the French Oscars, for Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay) and will soon settle down on our shores thanks to Music Box Films and a June 24th release date.

We'll let the official synopsis do the talking:

"Baya Benmahmoud, a young, extroverted liberal, lives by the old hippie slogan: “Make love, not war” to convert right-wing men to her left-wing political causes by sleeping with them. She seduces many and so far has received exceptional results – until she meets Arthur Martin, a Jewish middle aged, middle-of-the road scientist. Bound by common tragic family histories (the Algerian War and Holocaust under Vichy), the duo improbably fall in love. Amid the bubbly amour, humorous lasciviousness and moments of sheer madness, filmmaker Michel Leclerc injects satirical riffs on hot-button sociopolitical issues."

The Names of Love opens in New York and LA on June 24th. Check out the official website for more info.
