Murphy, a cinema school student, who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. But, one day, he sleeping with another woman, Omi, who happened to get pregnant as a result of Murphy's infidelity. Nora, Electra's mother, calls Murphy to ask him if he's heard from the young woman, because she hasn't for quite a while now, and given her daughter's suicidal tendencies, she is really worried. For the rest of this day, Murphy recalls his past with Electra, filled with drug abuse, rough sex, and tender moments.
When "Love" works, Noé achieves a lulling, melancholic frenzy about sex and memory, but the foundation isn't strong enough to make his movie ever seem more than a stereoscopic fermata: one envelope-pushing note held way too long.
Noé seems unwilling to accept that art requires editing - it is, by definition, artifice. It demands the artist make choices, rather than try to cram an entire catalog of experiences down the viewer's throat.
