This month's Monorail Film Club presents an enchanting bittersweet tale of young lovers (menaced by parental ambition, unwanted pregnancy and the Algerian War), Demy’s dialogue is sung throughout to Legrand’s fabulous score.
Rich pastel colours and fluid cinematography situate the proceedings in a magical territory somewhere between reality and fairy tale.
The ending especially, is unforgettable.
