Demoiselles de Rochefort, Les (The Young Girls of Rochefort) (1967) - Jacques Demy | Agnès Varda
Delphine and Solange are two sisters living in Rochefort. 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 owns a music shop, he left Paris once month ago to come back 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... A film whose scenario is much less important than its feeling of euphory, according to the director Jacques Demy. In the little town Rochefort lives Delphine (Catherine Deneuve) and Solange Garnier (Françoise Dorléac), two musical twins that teach music and dance to kids. One day, Etienne (George Chakiris) and Bill (Groover Dale) arrive in town, and need the twins help with a song and dance-number. Also, the famous piano-player Andy Miller (Gene Kelly) comes to town to help an old friend.
