The minor painter, Jean-Baptiste Emmerich, has died. Despite living in Paris, his dying wish is to be buried in Limoges, and so catching the train to the funeral are a mixture of the dead man's friends, lovers, students and relatives. Chereau's first feature since La Reine Margot is a fiercely intense, yet cathartic melodrama which, with every character suffering some form of a personal crisis, keeps veering off in unexpected directions. Brilliantly shot, Those Who Love Me … is also marked by a host of vivid, heartfelt performances.
