Musical

Beloved
Directed by Christophe Honore    FR | 2012 | U

Starring Catherine Deneuve and (her real-life daughter) Chiara Mastroianni, this sly and exquisitely romantic musical drama from Christophe Honoré (Love Songs, Dans Paris) spans over three decades as  it follows a mother and daughter’s misadventures in love. In the ‘60s, Madeleine (Ludivine Sagnier) leaves Paris to re-join her Czech husband Jaromil (Rasha Bukvic) in Prague, but his infidelities and the arrival of Russian tanks in the city lead her back to France. Thirty years later we follow the romance of Madeleine’s daughter, Vera, who falls in love with a musician (Paul Scneider) in London who is incapable of devoting himself to her. Meanwhile in Paris, a re-married Madeleine (Deneuve) has rekindled her love affair with Jaromil (Milos Forman). Louis Garrel and Paul Schneider also star in this light-hearted but ultimately  moving exploration of the changing nature of relationships, with music by Alex Beaupain (Love Songs).

The film was the closing night selection of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

The Beautiful Person
Directed by Christophe Honore    FR | U

Junie (Lea Seydoux) is a beautiful 16 year-old girl who arrives at a new school after the death of her mother. Introduced by her cousin to a band of his close friends, Junie finds herself the subject of constant attention as the colorful group of boys woo her in turn. Eventually she strikes up a close relationship with Otto (Gregoire Leprince-Ringuet), the most gently-mannered of the bunch. Otto seems to genuinely care for Junie, but she soon falls in love with Mr. Nemours (Louis Garrel), her Italian teacher. Nemours is a charmer with a serious penchant for his students, driven crazy by Junie’s mysterious nature.

A fresh adaptation of the classic novel La Princesse de Clevese by Mademoiselle de Chartres, THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE is director Christophe Honore’s free and modern interpretation of the classic story of young love.
