Les Demoiselles de Rochefort (1967) A Jacques Demy Film With Music By Michel Legrand

BFI

Groovy late-60s French film featuring Michel Legrand's music throughout - literally! A whole narrative based around Legrand's jazzy vocal and orchestral arrangements. Has to be seen to be believed! This is the follow up to the equally groovy 'Umbrellas of Cherbourg'.
