for romance and a chance to escape their small seaside town, twin sisters
Delphine and Solange (played by real-life siblings Catherine Deneuve and
Françoise Dorleac) befriend two kind hearted carnival workers who hire the
girls to sing at a visiting fair in this infectiously charming, bright and
effervescent musical from Jacques Demy.
Bursting with the same 1960s New Wave energy as Jean Luc Godard’s early work (as well as the films of Demy’s partner, Agnès Varda) Les Demoiselles de Rochefort is a colourful and life affirming joy of a film.
