Les Chansons D'Amour


After last year's Dans Paris, Les Chansons D'Amour looks like a logical sequel. Louis Garrel character is basically the same, Paris streets seem part of the narrative, there's a loss (now a literal one) and a look at its consequences... But this time there's also a surprising twist: Les Chansons D'Amour is also a musical. Yes, one of those where out of nowhere the characters start singing. But worry not, as these musical numbers are really well integrated in the narrative, almost in a natural way, where each song (and quite good songs...) is not a pause in the story but instead sublimes a sequence, a state of mind or a situation and helps things going. The rest is what you get when you look at the lives of a group of young and liberal Parisiennes, their relationships, their daily routines, their crisis. It all starts with a candid threesome, but that's only the beginning...
