Offers a feast for the mind and the heart, overwhelming the senses and transporting us into its delicately constructed rhythms.

Despite a fine pedigree, this film never quite reaches the needed crescendo, and unlike Demy's classic it doesn't leave you crying out for an encore. Still worth a look though.

With both of these in mind, I do see Love Songs as a worthwhile offering in a mostly forgotten genre for which I hold deep affection.

The terrific credit sequence sets the tone and the movie almost catches up.

Another pansexual odyssey from Christopher Honor; this one has singing
November 27, 2008
Sweetly plays on stereotypes of the French as obsessed with romance, or at least movie musicals, so regardless of any consistency or logic, love and singing conquer all.

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.

Starts well but loses its way in the middle section and never quite recovers, despite some catchy songs and decent performances.

It's a story which Honor describes as personal, so we must assume that there is some truth at least in the premise. But the decision to set the story to music undermines the emotional honesty that the piece might otherwise have had.

This inexpressibly tender and lovely picture suggests that [Honor's] developing into a major talent, one who can make the spirit of classic French movies come alive in a new world.

As dark as these themes seem, in Honor's capable hands, they become almost frothy and the perfect elements for a surprisingly joyous musical.

Yes, it's weird. But it's wild card weird, with that thrill of never knowing what's coming next or when these Parisians are going to get musical on us.

There's little doubt that Love Songs' reliance on mind-bogglingly ineffective musical numbers inevitably triggers its downfall...
May 23, 2008
It's one thing to emote through singing, but competing with the memory of a beloved classic is more than his gorgeous and talented cast can overcome.

You'll laugh. You'll swoon.

Oh, what a sweet, sad, sexy movie!
May 16, 2008
...an interesting exercise by writer/director Christophe Honore but it plays too unevenly.
May 3, 2008
[Christophe] Honore drops the brightness and joy of the form into the chilly, gray winter of Paris to explore love and loss and intimacy.

Love Songs finds the magic that the great screen musicals have -- the way a sad song can nonetheless leave an audience happy, or the way two voices blending seems to create something so much bigger.
