Synopsis

After their award-winning success with 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg', director Jacques Demy, composer Michel Legrand and star Catherine Deneuve re-teamed for this second Gallic take on the classic Hollywood musical. Denueve and her real-life sister Francoise Dorleac play a pair of music-teacher siblings looking for love in a pastel-coloured French coastal town. Dorleac is busy composing a symphony, while Deneuve has just broken up from her arrogant art dealer boyfriend, and together they are both preparing to perform at the local paegant. Meanwhile, a visiting American (Gene Kelly) discovers some music written by Dorleac and wonders how he can ever meet the composer, whilst a love-lorn sailor (Jacques Perrin) paints portaits of his dream girl, a young woman who looks surprisingly like Deneuve.
