What Love May Bring (French: Ces amours-là) is a 2010 French film directed by Claude Lelouch. It is also known as What Love May Bring.[1]


Ilva is a woman who falls in love too easily. Unaware and unconcerned about how her passion may be perceived, she finds herself having to live with the consequences of her actions. First, in the middle of the German occupation in Paris, she falls for a Nazi, which indirectly leads to the death of her father. For many, her relationship was interpreted as her collaboration with the Nazis. Her next love story, however, bring additional tragedy. During the liberation of France in '44, when she is violently summoned to answer for her relationship with the German, she is saved by two Americans GIs, one white and one black. She falls in love with both these men, at the same time. Her inability to choose between them, creates conflict, unhappiness and murder.

The film combines history, music, and a little absurdity to treat the subject of love, passion, and destiny.
