The Young Girls of Rochefort (Les Demoiselles de Rochefort)
Directed by Jacques Demy
With Catherine Deneuve, Françoise Dorléac, Gene Kelly, Michel Piccoli, George Chakiris, Grover Dale
Choreographer: Norman Maen
1967, Comedy-Musical, PG, 2h06, France
Starring real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac (plus Gene Kelly and Georges popping up in smaller role), and featuring an incredible jazzy score by master composer Michel Legrand, this timeless French musical is a carefree tribute to the classic Hollywood musical.
In the picturesque port town of Rochefort, the spirited Garnier twins, Delphine and Solange, share a strong bond and similar aspirations, despite their contrasting looks. Delphine, the celestial blonde, is a ballet teacher and dancer, while Solange, the fiery redhead, is a singer and composer. Together, they light up the town, imparting music and dance lessons with dreams of finding true love and pursuing their passions in the magical city of Paris.
