Michel Delpech, Milos Forman, and Chiara Mastroianni co-star. 139 min.

In 1964 Paris, Madeleine (Ludivine Sagnier, Love Songs, Love Crime), a shoe salesgirl and part-time prostitute, falls in love with Jaromil, a Czech doctor she has picked up. Years later, Madeleine (played in maturity by the great Catherine Deneuve), now married to another man, continues to see Jaromil (director Milos Forman). Meanwhile, her grown daughter Vera (Chiara Mastroianni, the real-life daughter of cinema icons Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni) is in emotional turmoil of her own, torn between her longtime boyfriend (Louis Garrel, the Dreamers, Ma Mere) and an unobtainable American musician (Paul Schneider, Water for Elephants, Elizabethtown). Christophe Honoré's musical romantic drama BELOVED is a sweeping, heartfelt story set against the transcontinental political and social upheavals of four decades - all set to infectious songs sung by the cast.
