The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967)

4 Stars (out of 4)

Immi-Nantes

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

A French marvel by Jacques Demy, this candy-colored Michel Legrand musical stars Catherine Deneuve, her dearly departed and adorable sister Francoise Dorleac -- and none other than Gene Kelly. The two sisters work at a little snack bar and dream of meeting the perfect guy and being swept away to Paris. It's defiantly different and utterly delightful. I like it better than the decidedly more grim The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. The ridiculous songs are full of puns, but just try to get them out of your head! Demy's widow, filmmaker Agnes Varda, supervised the 1996 restoration and re-release of this unsung classic.
