A little over a week left until the start of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, it’s the festival’s closing night film that has everyone talking now.

Thanks to Collider, we have the first piece of footage from the upcoming Christophe Honore-directed film, LES BIEN-AIMES, and while it isn’t too much to write home about length wise, the footage looks absolutely wonderful.

The clip itself, clocking in at just around three minutes, features Catherine Deneuve and Chaira Mastroianni, as they sing the song “Une Fille Leger.” It’s a great little clip, and really gives a good look into what type of visual style, mood and tone the film will likely be taking. Check it out after the break.

The cast also includes Ludivine Sagnier, Milos Forman, Louis Garrel, Michel Delpech, and Paul Schneider, and follows “characters that draw us into Prague of the sixties, London of the '80s, the world of Sept. 11 and Paris of today in a singular, melancholy and romantic work of art.” Honore is a fantastic filmmaker, and this is easily one of the most interesting projects set to hit the Croisette this year.
