Abstract

This chapter explores performances of crystal-songs, showing how they function as critical interventions. These are organised into songs to which characters dance, sing along to, sing entirely, sing while playing the piano, or a combination of the above, such as the song that a character both sings and dances to. The films covered are: De rouille et d’os, Ni le ciel ni la terre, La Vie en grand, Plan de table, Situation amoureuse: c’est compliqué, Polisse, Samba, Un début prometteur, Les Émotifs anonymes, Une nouvelle amie, Un Français, La Volante, Un bonheur n’arrive jamais seul, Les Bêtises, Par accident, Bande de filles.
