Twins Delphine and Solange dream of getting out of their small hometown Rochefort to find love and fortune in the big city. As they plan to leave, both are hired as carnival singers. Over the course of one weekend, Solange falls for American musician Andy, while Delphine searches for her ideal man.
This finale in Jacques Demy’s romantic musical trilogy is sparkling and spellbinding: buoyed by the marvelous combination of Catherine Deneuve and real-life sister Françoise Dorléac, and one such American in Paris, Gene Kelly. A film of many moving parts, all dreamily put together.
