Love Songs

Rated NR 2008

Louis Garrel has the ideal face for this strenuously whimsical French musical romance, writer-director Christophe Honoré’s bittersweet tribute to Jacques Demy’s song-filled confections à la The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. Actor Garrel (The Dreamers), of the heroic nose and antsy emotionalism, plays unlucky lover Ismaël, a Parisian trying to deal with loss by bursting into song (and dance) on the street. Joining in are Ludivine Sagnier as his main squeeze, Clotilde Hesme as the other woman, and Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet as the other man. Composer Alex Beaupain’s songs are instantly forgettable but Garrel’s brilliantly daffy, moody performance is not. Completely impractical and not for everyone. The ideal 3 a.m. movie (100 min.).
