Les Chansons d'amour

Les Chansons d'amour (Love Songs) by Christophe Honore is part of the Vangard series at TIFF. The film tells of Julie and Ismael attempt to reignite the spark between them by inviting a third person, Alice, into their bed - and singing about it - in this romantic drama musical. But when tragedy strikes, everyone and everything is left at loose ends.
I've always liked musicals, although this one is supposed to keep things pretty dramatic. It's also French, meaning I won't understand it beyond the subtitles.
The film debut in Cannes and stars the delectible Ludvine Sagnier.
