Black or bleu? Heart or head? Hard-nosed Kiwi power merchants or cavalier, flamboyant Frenchmen?
Just some of the questions ahead of Saturday's quarter-final in Cardiff. Trouble is, most people think there's only one answer - a blackwash.
The Kiwis are overwhelming favourites, and yet...
France got themselves into this pickle by losing to Argentina and finishing second in the group. Bernard Laporte's side have stuttered and are under severe pressure to escape from Wales with a victory to keep alive their hopes of a home-soil World Cup crown.
Few think they can get past the All Blacks, but then no-one thought they could pull off the remarkable in 1999 either, coming back from 24-10 down to win 43-31 against the men in black.
The Kiwis haven't been tested yet this tournament and, to the rest of the world at least, still have the tag of "World Cup chokers" to dispense with, having been the best team in the world in between the last two events, only to blow it in the semis.
So are the Kiwis too strong to ruin the romance this time around, or can France once again show their devilish side and conjure up some more magic?
I'd love to be wrong but I can't see past the former.
