Pure joy from beginning to end
Lovely lighthearted musical starring sisters Françoise Dorléac and Catherine Deneuve.
Musicals are usually not my thing, and shallow romances appeal to me almost as much as the plague, so I had low expectations going into this one. But the music! I was charmed from the opening number and I'm still whistling it days later. There's no hamming for the camera in the choreography, just lighthearted love stories played in brilliant color on screen.
