Less well-known than the captivating Umbrellas of Cherbourg, this delightful musical drama from director Jacques Demy is full of his signature rich colours and romantic optimism. Never cute or cloying, it's full of hope and an openness to experience that beguiles. Hollywood legend Gene Kelly makes one of his last cinema appearances here, playing a potential suitor to one of two sisters (Catherine Deneuve and Françoisee Dorleac) who dream of love and escape from their small town. Voiced in French, subtitles in English.
