French comic actor Noel-Noel took a one-time-only fling at direction with La Vie Chantee. He also starred in the film and penned its satirical music score. Not so much a movie as a musical revue, the film examines the various stages of romance, from courtship to marriage to jealousy to renunciation to reconciliation. Noel-Noel essays a wide variety of roles in the course of events, the most amusing of which is a conveniently amnesiac uncle. Colette Georges flits in and out of the action as a script clerk who tries to keep the many characters and events straight for the edification of the audience.
