About Love Songs

The exuberant and tender LOVE SONGS (LES CHANSONS D'AMOUR) further laments Christophe Honore as one of the most exciting filmmakers of our generation. A modern day musical told through unforgettable songs sung entirely by the cast and scored by Alex Beaupain, the film has overjoyed audiences at the Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals. In the hope of sparking their stalled relationship, Ismael (Louis Garrel of DANS PARIS, THE DREAMERS) and Julie (Ludivine Sagnier of SWIMMING POOL) enter a playful yet emotionally laced threesome with Alice (Clotilde Hesme of REGULAR LOVERS.) When tragedy strikes, these young Parisians are forced to deal with the fragility of life and love. For Ismael, this means negotiating through the advances of Julie's sister (Chara Mastroianni of PERSEPOLIS) and a young college student (Gregoire Leprince-Ringuet of STRAYED); one of which may offer him redemption.

Acclaim

"SEDUCTIVE AND RAPTUROUS. The fact is that I didn't want it to end at all. A blend of Francois Truffaut's wistful Parisian sentimentalism and Pedro Almodovar's acrid polysexual comedy."
Andrew O'Heir, Salon
"Not since I was a boy watching Cyd Charisse in Singin' in the Rain has a musical made me feel so happy."
Mark Cousins, Sight & Sound Magazine
"Christophe Honore's films aren't just films you like- you develop weird little crushes on them."
Mark Olsen, Film Comment
"A JOY...PROFOUND AND AFFECTING...(A) TRIBUTE TO THE PLAYFULNESS OF THE FRENCH NEW WAVE."
Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A SEXY QUINTESSENTIALLY FRENCH DELICACY. A DIZZY MUSICAL COMEDY."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times
