Happy Valentine’s Day!

Celebrate Valentine’s Day by watching Christophe Honoré’s 2007 film Les Chansons d’amour, known in English as Love Songs.

This musical, often compared to Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, could only be French.  The attractive young cast is headed by Louis Garrel, probably the best French actor of his generation, and includes Ludivine Sagnier, Clotilde Hesme, and Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet, all of whom have gone on to glittering careers.


It’s been far too long since I’ve been in Paris.
