Les Demoiselles De Rochefort
Monday, 20 September 2010

Jacques Demy. France. 1967. 126 mins. Sub-titles. Cert U. New print.

This is one of the most stylish and joyously exuberant musicals ever made. A bittersweet tale set in the pastel-painted port of Rochefort. Twins (real life siblings Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac) teach dance and music but life becomes more fun when the carnival (with Gene Kelly) arrives in town.
