‘What’s the use of love?’ ask the late two French singers and past lovers, Edith Piaf and Theo Sarapo throughout their legendary song, ‘A quoi ça sert l’amour’.
Made with love and a budget of only €40, Victor Habchy tried to answer that question in his beautifully touching piece of cinema, ‘Amour Toujours’ (‘Love Always’).
Inspired by Louis Clichy’s animated film, A quoi ça sert l’amour’, the French photographer and filmmaker from Paris, wrote, directed, produced and gave birth to this wonderfully simple and heart-to-heart story dedicated to ‘all those who are in love’.
Following the journey of a couple in the city of love, ‘Amour Toujours’ (‘Love Always’) is a very touching short film that not only celebrates unexpected, pure, and eternal love, but also the ups and downs of a relationship, the ugly and the beautiful, the happy and the sad, the laughter and the tears, the hugs and the fights.
Visually, this film is a like a dancing whirlwind, which can make you feel slightly sick, but ends in the mosst perfect way possible under the colourful sparks of a firework, leaving its audience with an answer on what the use of love is… it makes you feel dizzy and sad and absolutely wonderful at the same time.
