Tearing a page out of Jacques Demy’s French musicals, Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Young Girls of Rochefort, and throwing in a phrase or two from Jules and Jim, Love Songs ends up a minor pastiche.

Amiable and appealing turns by Ludivine Sagnier and Chiara Mastroianni fail to elevate the material.

Grade: B-
