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.Written by
Before Jacques Demy selected Rochefort as the location for this movie, he also considered Avignon, Hyeres, Toulouse, and La Rochelle among others. Rochefort won out because of the size of its central square, though production designer Bernard Evein found it necessary to repaint 40,000 square meters of the city's facades. See more »

If the 60´s were an excelent decade to explore new color matches, try new forms, and accentuate the visual part of your life in terms of Design, Fashion, and other industries, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort is one of the brightest examples of the study in color applied to a movie. In this film, every color is studied to the full, its possibilities enlightened the sets and made us enter a world of tasteful fantasy. Director Jacques Demy, winner of the Cannes festival for "Les Parapluis de Cherbourg" directs the two sisters, Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac as the twin sisters living at the village of Rochefort, waiting for their perfect love to arrive. Gene Kelly, Michel Piccoli and Danielle Darrieux complete the cast of one of the most beautiful films I ever saw.
