About the Movie
Christophe Honoré cements his status as one of the most exciting filmmakers of our generation with the exuberant and tender LOVE SONGS, part of his loose “Parisian Youth” trilogy. Modern day musical told through songs sung entirely by its cast (Louis Garrel, Ludivine Sagnier, Chiara Mastroianni, Clothilde Hesme and Gregorie Le-Prince Ringuet). Has overjoyed audiences at the Cannes, Toronto and Chicago Film Festivals while earning recognition in France with four Cesár nominations. “Likely to inspire ardent love among its admirers.” – Scott, NY Times. "Not since I was a boy watching Cyd Charisse in SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN has a musical made me feel so happy" -Cousins, Sight & Sound. "Honoré's films aren't just films you like- you develop weird little crushes on them” - Olsen, Film Comment. "Occasionally a filmmaker comes along who truly remind us why we love cinema” -Dawson, Filmmaker."Exhilarating…blossoms from the inside out" -Edelstein, New York. From IFC Films.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The melodies in Love Songs are charming and so, for the most part, is the movie, even if it doesn't entirely work.
Fresh: Boy loves girl and sings about it, boy loses girl to tragedy and sings about it, then boy considers the possibility of new love with a new boy and sings about it -- and the whole thing works, in a delirious French way.
Rotten: Conceived by Honore as a tribute to a dead friend, the helmer is perhaps too close to his subject, never quite able to bring himself to linger on the grief that should be at pic's core.
Rotten: For a film roiling with so much turmoil of the heart, Love Songs generates dismayingly little emotional frisson.
When a movie is so good!
This movie makes me so happy. Although a little iffy at times and a little dull at others the music is amazing and the acting is brilliant. What I thought as I watched this movie:
When your watching a movie in the middle of the night, on your ipod, in bed and an incredibly cute part is shown, but you cant squeal so you silently smile to yourself and roll over. When a movie's so good that when your watching a scene where a dead character is being remembered, and you think "how the hell did the film that, she's dead." When a movie is so good and ends so well that you find yourself still grinning from ear to ear 10 minuets after it's over.
