Catherine Deneuve and Francoise Dorleac star as twin sisters aching to leave provincial Rochefort for the pleasures of Paris. But before they do, there’s plenty of singing and dancing, family secrets, romantic entanglements – and a stupendous appearance from Gene Kelly.
This utterly French and shamelessly romantic musical could be the oddest and most delightful film you will ever see.
Thanks to everyone who came to Deptford Film Club’s launch on Wednesday 17 February 2010. The response was fantastic and the room was packed (many apologies to the people we had to turn away).
