464. Les Demoiselles de Rochefort

Les Demoiselles de Rochefort
The Young Ladies of Rochefort
Directed by Jacques Demy

We finally reach the end of a long streak of movies I have seen.  I hope I provided you with plenty of reading material and I will try to get back to this blog as soon as possible, although I have been neglecting my album and book blogs as of late.  Anyway, I absolutely adore this movie and can see watching it again and again.

Catherine Deneuve (wow that was quick) and Francoise Dorleac are two sisters, who long for romance outside of Rochefort.  And wait, what is Gene Kelly doing here?

Wow, what a fun movie.  You can see how colorful and beautiful the movie is simply from the above picture.  The songs are great and the entire cast is extremely talented.  This makes Umbrellas of Cherbourg look like...something worse than this film.  Sorry it is 12:11 AM.

RATING: *****

Interesting Facts:

Demy had to wait two years for Gene Kelly to be available for the film.

Best song in the movie:


  1. Well done on one you obviously really enjoyed..Pleased for you.
    I'm afraid I have to disagree.. but, so what..
    I guess you will not be surprised I found this rather pink and sickly..

    1. I knew you wouldn't like this one since you don't like musicals. I found it to be a lot less pink and sickly than Umbrellas at least.

  2. I absolutely love the Umbrellas of Cherbourg, but have never seen this one. I will have to check it out.

  3. Surprise, surprise, I actually loved this one. It is so happy I had to love it.
