Saw Les Demoiselles de Rochefort last night. It is this week’s favorite movie ever.  I have some bones to pick with the ending, but really, a movie with a singing, dancing, chain-smoking (while cooking, and dancing!) Catherine Deneuve can’t go very wrong. Her older sister, the equally beautiful and talented Francoise Dorleac, was also in the movie; she died in a car accident in 1967, the same year the movie was released. That definitely casts a pall on what is otherwise an extremely hilarious and cheery film.

Gene Kelly was in it as well. He was great. See the movie.
