LES DEMOISELLES DE ROCHEFORT
A film by Jacques Demy
Following on from the success of Les Parapluies de Cherbourg comes Les Demoiselles de Rochfort - Jacques Demy's large-scale tribute to the Hollywood musical featuring screen legend Gene Kelly. The story centres on twin sisters Delphine and Solange (played by real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac) who, tired of their humdrum existence, dream of finding success and romance in Paris. The superb ensemble, also featuring Daniele Darrieux, Michel Piccoli, Jacques Perrin, George Chakiris and Grover Dale, weave and wander around the town, looking for and just missing the love of their lives.
With a plot of pure Shakespearean farce, witty dialogue and lyrics by Demy, and a magnificent jazz score by three-times Academy Award winner Michel Legrand, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort is an effervescent celebration of life that is sure to captivate and uplift
