Bigger than Life / Les demoiselles de Rochefort + Introduction

Jacques Demy’s joyous, pastel-hued follow-up to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg finds him working on an MGM scale as real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac play twins looking for love and excitement in their hometown. Michel Legrand provides the jazzy score, while Gene Kelly dazzles in a supporting role. Screening from a 35mm print.

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
