Criterion Collection: The Young Girls Of Rochefort

The colors explode off of the screen on the disc for this classic French musical. The gorgeous print is presented in widescreen (anamorphic) with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The French language soundtrack is in 2.0 Dolby Digital Surround and there are optional English subtitles and English captions for the hearing impaired. The only extra feature included are theatrical trailers for Purple Noon, Belle de Jour, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Though slim on the extras, the beautiful print more than makes up for this oversight.

While not as emotionally satisfying as Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Girls is a fun, tuneful romp from the 60's. There are numerous fine songs and I recommend getting the 2 cd soundtrack. The two sisters are looking for love and success in their careers and the whole movie is filled with sentimental, rather silly coincidence and predictable situations but I loved every moment of it. (Umbrellas is even better, though quite different and much more sophisticated--get it for sure!) I like hearing the French and often forget to read the subtitles. As an additional surprise, Gene Kelly plays one of his last romantic roles and he is surprisingly natural and believable. (I find him usually a bit stiff.) Sadly, one of the two sisters was killed in a real-life car accident after this movie.

This film was a follow up (1967) to the much better known Umbrellas of Cherbourgh. Unlike the sad and rainy ''Umbrellas'', YOUNG GIRLS is a delightfully upbeat, sunny, lighthearted musical with a quite complex, intertwined plot.. Michel Legrand's music is a true pleasure - some call it his best score. The beginning (with two overtures) is slow, but once the plots and characters develop it's spellbinding. Although there is a lot of dancing, the dancing is not too inspired. I find the whole package so delightful and watchable any flaws are easy to overlook. This long-awaited release will be high on my gift list this year. An internet search will bring up a number of web sites and reviews of this little-known film; the city of Rochefort will even send you a brochure about the film.
