French Film Fest: Dreams, Escapes and Survival – The Young Girls Of Rochefort

Sat, Mar 19 / 9:30 pm
Directed by Jacques Demy
1967, France, 126 min
French w/ English Subtitles

Dreams, Escapes and Survival is a French film festival organized by Alliance Française du Manitoba and Winnipeg Cinematheque to mark the 20th edition of the French Language and Francophony week. It is an invitation to discover films from different times and experience some sophisticated, vibrant and daring films from France. With the support of Institut Français this is the 2nd edition of the festival (in 2015, its title was Secrets, Lies and Betrayal).

Twins Delphine and Solange, a dance instructor and a music teacher (played by real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac), long for big-city life; when a fair arrives in their quiet port town, so does the possibility of escape. With its jazzy Michel Legrand score, pastel paradise of costumes, and divine supporting cast (Danielle Darrieux, Michel Piccoli, and Gene Kelly), The Young Girls of Rochefort is a tribute to Hollywood optimism from sixties French cinema’s preeminent dreamer.
