Love is a 2015 French 3D erotic romantic drama film written and directed by Gaspar Noe. The film marked Noe's fourth directorial venture after a gap of five years. The film revolves around the lives of an American cinema school student, named Murphy, and his former French girlfriend, Electra, whom he dated for two years while living in Paris. One day, Murphy and Electra met and had a no-strings-attached threesome with another woman, a young blonde Danish teenager named Omi, as a way to add some excitement to their love life. But later, Murphy had sex with Omi behind Electra's back, as a result of which Omi became pregnant. This unwanted pregnancy ended the relationship between Murphy and Electra on a very sad note, and it forced Murphy to get married to Omi. On a rainy 1 January morning, Electra's mother, Nora, phones Murphy at his small Paris apartment where he lives with Omi and their 18-month-old son 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 (and the film), Murphy recalls his past two years with Electra in a series of fragmented, nonlinear flashbacks; how they first met in Paris, their quick hookup, and their lives over the next two years which is filled with drug abuse, rough sex and tender moments.
