Love Songs

Rated 3.0

The sweet French film Love Songs follows the pansexual couplings and triplings of a group of beautiful Parisian 20-somethings prone to breaking into earnest pop songs. This airy import has a bit of a cult following back home, and it’s not hard to see why: It’s as heart-on-the-sleeve as French cinema can get, a somber but colorful look at love, death, romantic devotion and sexual exploration. Director Christophe Honoré hits all the right references (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, A Woman Is a Woman, and One From the Heart, especially), but there is never the explosion of style or the indelible moment that you hope for. There are just a lot of nice, little moments.
