Pinhole Movie Reviews


The Young Girls of Rochefort / Les Demoiselles de Rochefort by tincolor

Catherine Deneuve and Francoise Dorléac are sisters (in real life, too), desperate to get out of picturesque Rochefort, a port town in France were everyone is lovesick, but no one ends up alone as long as you sing and dance for 90 minutes. If you’re familiar with Jacques Demy then you know that in his films everyone and everything is beautiful and no problem is so great that it detracts from enjoying life to the fullest. A fantastic soundtrack by Michel Legrand, fairy tale-esque cinematography by Ghislain Cloquet and foppish consumes that only work because this is a Demy film! Worth watching for fans of musicals and anyone interested in 1960s European pop culture.

Hey Tom! Nice review, it sounds a lot like the “Parapluies de Cherbourg”, which is the best. Same director and composer AND Catherine Deneuve is in it. Did you see that one?
