Love Songs (Les Chansons d'amour)
Directed by Christophe Honoré, 2007, 1h50
With Louis Garrel, Ludivine Sagnier and Clotilde Hesme

A dazzling modern-day musical set in the vibrant streets of Paris, Love Songs follows the romantic fortunes of a diverse group of young city dwellers. Keenly attuned to the complications of romance in the twenty-first century, it is sweetly earnest but witty, romantic yet realistic: a perfect picture of the ups and downs of love and loss, set to sophisticated French pop music.

Films on the Lake is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in Chicago parks by the Cultural Service at the Consulate General of France in Chicago as part of the Chicago Park District's Movies in the Parks.

There is music and song in the air this summer through a selection of five classic and contemporary French movies presented in various parks and neighborhoods, with a concert or DJ set prior to each screening.

Movies in the Parks is presented by Bank of America. Films on the Lake is made possible thanks to the generous support of our official sponsors Kids Trail, TV5MONDE, and Blue Foundation with additional support from local community partners
