A quoi ça sert l’amour? - Live action version

"A quoi ça sert l’amour?" (previously) is an adorable cartoon set to a fantastic old song by Edith Piaf; recently, students at USC Film School set out to act out a live version of the cartoon, results here.

Very nice. I like the cartoon better, but still very good.

il faut plus de Paris et moins de Californie. Mais bon, ceci n'est pas un dessanimé.

What, no piano?

Still, an excellent find. Merci beaucoup, jonson.

I note that she doesn't have a black eye in the live-action version...

I miss the piano, too. But the live action filmmakers did a pretty good job of keeping the pace & spirit of the cartoon intact even when they had to change the action and camera shots. It's really pretty impressive for a student film.

So the Californian equivalent of the Sacré Coeur is... some kind of car park on a hill, next to a McDonalds?

Too bad about the lack of lighting. Apparently all the budget went into other things, like interesting transitions.
