The Bigger Picture film club will be showing ‘Les Demoiselles De Rochefort’ (1967) at 8pm on Thursday, 19 October 2017, Upstairs at East Dulwich Tavern.
Delphine and Solange are two sisters living in Rochefort. In this musical, Delphine is a dancing teacher and Solange composes and teaches the piano. Maxence is a poet and a painter. He is doing his military service. Simon, who owns a music shop, left Paris one month ago to come back to the place where he fell in love 10 years ago. They are looking for love, looking for each other, without being aware that their ideal partner is very close. They sing and dance in the streets, a euphoria intended by the director.
Director: Jacques Demy
France 125 minutes Cert U
We say: Cited as one of the inspirations for La La Land with its primary coloured costumes and dancing in the streets, this musical is unapologetically feelgood. A summer confection as light and brightly coloured as tissue paper with Catherine Deneuve and Gene Kelly and music by Michel Legrand. What’s not to love?
Bar opens from 7pm. Film at 8pm.
