When Tatiana meets Eugene, she is 14, he is 17; it is summer, and he has nothing to do but talk to her. He is confident, charming, and full of boredom, and she is shy, idealistic, and romantic. Inevitably, she falls in love with him, and he, it would seem... too. So she writes him a letter; he rejects her, perhaps for the wrong reasons. And then a drama separates them for good. Ten years later, they meet again by chance. Tatiana has asserted herself, she is mature and confident; Eugene realizes now that he absolutely needs her. But does she still want him? Songe à la douceur is the story of these two stories of absolute and out-of-phase love—one a teenager, the other a young adult—and what ten years at this point in a life can change. A double love story inspired by Pushkin’s and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin—and therefore written in verse, to keep the poetry.
