Bigger Than Life/ Les demoiselles de Rochefort at HOME

Bigger than Life / Les demoiselles de Rochefort at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 14 January 2020, from £9.50 - Book now

Jacques Demy’s joyous, pastel-hued follow-up to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg sees him working on an MGM scale. Real life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac play twins (dance instructor Delphine and musician Solange) looking for love and excitement as their hometown of Rochefort gears up for a fair. Michel Legrand provides the jazzy score, whilst Demy coaxed Gene Kelly into lending some Hollywood glamour (and his own choreography) to a supporting role as a visiting American.

The film will screen from a 35mm print with an introduction from Bigger Than Life programmers, Tom Grieve and Jim Laycock.
