Love Songs (Les Chansons d'Amour)


A French musical comedy about a ménage a trois? C'est vrai. Director Christophe Honoré's Love Songs (Les Chansons d'Amour) arrives at Zeitgeist this week as part of the center's 'Future Cult Classics" series. With three attractive stars (Louis Garrel, Ludivine Sagnier and Clotilde Hesme) and 14 original songs by composer Alex Beaupain, this valentine to Paris and Parisians examines the fallout after Honoré's trio experiences an unexpected tragedy. A hit at the Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals, Love Songs has been compared to the best of Franois Truffaut and Pedro Almodóvar, so expect it to be smart, sentimental, wistful, sexy and very, very French. In French with English subtitles. Tickets $7 general admission, $6 students/seniors, $5 Zeitgeist members. — Kevin Allman
