Plot Summary:

"Beloved," the latest film from French writer-director Christophe Honoré ("Love Songs," "Dans Paris", is a sly and lovely romantic musical drama spanning three decades as it follows a mother and daughter's misadventures in love. In the freewheeling Paris of the '60s, young Madeleine (Ludivine Sagnier)--who has gone from selling shoes to sleeping with men for money--falls for a handsome Czech doctor, Jaromil (Rasha Bukvic), whom she soon marries and joins in Prague. A baby daughter is born, but Jaromil's infidelities and the arrival of Russian tanks in Prague lead Madeleine back to France--though the love between them still burns. Thirty years later in London, we follow Madeleine's daughter, Vera (Chiara Mastroianni), who has fallen in love with a musician (American actor Paul Schneider) who is incapable of devoting himself to her, while her ex (Honore regular Louis Garrel) still pines for her. Meanwhile in Paris, a re-married Madeleine (Catherine Deneuve) has rekindled her love affair with Jaromil (Milos Forman).
