Les chansons d'amour

This Sunday I rewatched Les chansons d'amour. It had been a while since I saw it last and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the songs. I also like that the actors don't all necessarily have the best singing voices, but they sing with such honesty and feeling, which is more important. (I don't like when actors' voices are dubbed for singing!)
I sometimes wonder why there aren't more musical dramas. After all, people don't only feel like singing when they're happy. Here are two of my favorites from the film:

Les yeux au ciel - sung by Louis Garrel

Au parc - sung by Chiara Mastroianni
