Je t'aime moi non plus (English title: I Love You, I Don't) is a 1976 feature film written, directed, and musically scored by Serge Gainsbourg, starring Jane Birkin, Hugues Quester and Joe Dallesandro, and featuring a cameo by Gérard Depardieu.

Plot introduction[edit]

The plot of the movie centers on Krassky (Joe Dallesandro), a homosexual man, who is attracted to Johnny (Jane Birkin), a boyish looking woman. They begin an affair, which is complicated by the fact that he cannot achieve an erection so as to perform vaginal intercourse. The pain of anal intercourse is so great for Johnny, though, that her screams cause them to be thrown out of a series of motels.[1] After a row with Johnny, Krassky returns to his boyfriend Padovan (Hugues Quester).

Motives[edit]

Je t'aime moi non plus was the first film directed by Gainsbourg.[2] Jane Birkin was his partner at that time.[3] It includes elements of symbolism recurrent in Gainsbourg's work: death and sex.[1] Depardieu has a few short appearances, playing a homosexual bestialist.
