Christopher Honore’s first musical since Les chansons D’amour in 2007 is a sprawling tale following a mother and a daughter and their misadventures in love. It starts in 1963 Paris and ends in 2008 Paris with trips taken in the intervening 45 years to Prague, London and Montreal. Madeleine and her daughter Vera waltz in and out of the lives of the men they love. But love can be light and painful, cheerful and bitter. An elegy to femininity and passion with musical outbursts.
He arrived in Paris in the 1990s, where he began working in cinema. After debuting with the short film Nous deux (2001), his feature films show him as a very personal creator, with a taste marked by a certain pop romanticism, and with an extraordinary ability to integrate his idols into his particular and very recognizable imaginary. D’A dedicated a retrospective to him in 2019.
