Les Demoiselles de Rochefort
Les Demoiselles de Rochefort (The Young Girls of Rochefort) is a 1967 French musical film written and directed by Jacques Demy, starring Catherine Deneuve and her sister Françoise Dorléac.
It takes place over the course of one weekend in the seaside town of Rochefort, where a fair is coming to the town square. The story centers on twin sisters Delphine and Solange — Delphine teaches ballet classes and Solange gives music lessons for a living, but each longs to find her ideal love and a life outside of Rochefort.
When the fair comes to town, Delphine and Solange meet two smooth-talking but kind-hearted carnies, Étienne and Bill.
