Festival Sinema Prancis 2012: ‘Les Bien-aimés’

belovedThe story starts in 1960’s Paris with ladies shoes, a girl, amateur prostitution, a young Czech doctor, and then the girl sings (I guess this is a musical then). They get married, move to Prague, have a daughter, then he cheats on her and she sings another song (Oh yes, this is definitely a musical). Soviet invades Czech, she returns to Paris, about a decade later she marries another man, her daughter grows up, the doctor also returns to Paris, and she sings a duet with her daughter, and while singing she grows old into…Cathy Deneuve.
Be patient. It’s a long, long, story with many crazy love triangles, a slow, slow, pace and more, more, songs to sing.
