Christophe Honore further makes a case as one of the most exciting filmmakers of our generation with the exuberant and tender "Love Songs." 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 while earning recognition in its native Country with four French Cesar nominations. 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.
