This weeks film is: The Young Girls of Rochefort
Les demoiselles de Rochefort, Jacques Demy, France 1967, 124 mins, CinemaScope. G

Arguably Demy's greatest film, this adds dance to the brew as (real life) sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac dream of love and leaving Rochefort, just as a carnival and an American composer (Gene Kelly!) arrive.

With a town square repainted in bright vivid colours, energetic choreography, superb songs and support from Michel Piccoli and Danielle Darrieux, this is one of the most joyously ebullient movies ever.

"A sun-drenched, candy-coloured, singing and dancing valentine to the Hollywood confections of Vincente Minelli." – New York Times
