I feel sorry for people who say they don’t like musicals, because they must not have seen The Young Girls of Rochefort. Never been around young girls of Rochefort?
If this film doesn’t make you the smitten kitten, then I really don’t know what to tell you. 🐱 This is among the most enchanting cinematic experiences of my whole life.
It’s got it all: a pair of stylish, virtuoso Gemini twins, handsome young men dancing in tight trousers, a dazzling colour palette, some of the catchiest melodies imaginable by Michel Legrand, an Agnès Varda cameo as a nun, and even a sensational axe-murderer scandal!
The proper Gemini season film! ♊️♊️ Bless you, Jacques Demy. 💗✨
