A bittersweet black-and-white film about a young musician searching for his path in life, and a young waitress with a beautiful voice trying to build up the courage to perform. After a chance encounter, they fall in love and both face the same choice—between love and ambition. Robert is an aspiring musician who can’t earn the respect of his father, a famous actor. Alicja is a waitress whose remarkable vocal talent barely registers due a crippling stage fright.
Loosely based on the director’s own experience, Songs About Love is a poetic and lyrical tale, shot in a fluid style reminiscent of the French New Wave, and harkening back to the aching romance of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová in the beloved musical Once.
