Alain Resnais - On Connaît la Chanson (1997)

Simon secretly loves Camille. Camille, due to a misunderstanding, falls for Marc Duveyrier. Marc, a handsome realtor, who's also Simon's boss, is trying to sell an apartment to Odile Lalande, Camille's sister. Odile really wants this apartment, despite the silent disapproval of her husband, Claude. Claude, somewhat wan in character, finds it hard to stomach the reappearance, after many years, of Nicolas. Nicolas, an old friend of Odile's becomes the confidant of Simon... The dialogue is in part made up of extracts of French hit songs, sung in situation by the actors. link
