Format: DVD
This enchanting 1958 musical remake of the 1948 French Film of the same name has finally been released as it should onto DVD and it is a marvel to see.In fact this two disc set also INCLUDES the aforementioned 1948 b&w full screen film which compares quite favourably to its' musical sister.
Let's start with the 1948 82 1/2 minute version.
Based on a short story(novella)written by French writer Collette during WW2,this film tells the tale of one Gilberte or Gigi who is being raised by her Grandmother Mamita(Yvonne De Bray)with much input from her Aunt Alicia(Gaby Morlay).Her own mother is a "working" stage performer who hasn't the time or seeming inclination to raise Gigi herself(you only hear the mother periodcially off camera singing).The film opens at the Eiffel Tower as we see an old Lothario by the name of Honore'(Jean Tissier)escorting a girl probably a good third his age to the restaurant there.We also meet his nephew Gaston(Frank Villaird) who is quite well to do(he works in the sugar business) and a chip off his old uncle in the romance department.Gaston is young and bored with his life but often gets some pleasant diversion from visiting Mamita and Gigi for some good food and card playing with Gigi(she usually wins).Gigi is a typical 16 year old who carries all the habits and the lack of maturity of a girl that age but is brought up with the sage advice of her grandmother combined with regular visits to her Aunt Alicia,who imparts proper manners and the deportment society expects.
Gaston meanwhile carries on his playboy lifestyle for all of societal Paris to see;something expected of everyone of his stature.You see this Paris at the turn of the century is full of romantic intrigues,trysts and adultery.

I think that GIGI is the best musical ever. I just love Aunt Alicia and her sister. Hermoine Gingold is fabulous. This movie takes you into a world that you don't want to come out of. If only they would make more movies like this today. My grandaughter absolutely adores it. I want to watch Gigi over and over and does not want it to end. I get lost in the movie and wish I could stay there forever. It is absolutely fantastic.!!!!! More young people should be able to see this movie. Whomever have not seen this movie they are missing out on life itself. Julia Reid

I see the raging opinions of people who consider this an "awful" movie. This is on the grounds that the music is for "oldies" and the lyrics "inane", on the one hand. On the other hand they find the plot "mysoginistic" and machoist. Nonsense. They judge a beautiful work of art of the past with today's values. Have they considered that maybe today's values are wrong as any time values are wrong and scoffed at only some years later...? I suppose this people admire things like Brando's "The Wilde One" and things like that. They are entitled to their opinion, as we are entitled to ours.
In the first place, the music is gorgeous and exhilarating. Most of the songs are very witty, intelligent, they tell more than they seem to say. It was the great Lerner who wrote them. Is has benn considered a great musical, it won Academy awards, and it is alright. I suppose that the plot would'nt have been mysoginist if Gigi had poured wax on Gaston's back, both stark naked (to quote from a film I recently saw: "Body of evidence" with Madonna). Sure. And very realistic, too... Ha, ha...
France at the turn of the century was like that, and the film is basically faithful to Colette's short story. It is a moving story turned into a musical and a comedy. Most of the characters are amoral but personally fair. Chevalier is charming all allong, so is Leslie Caron.
So stay away those post-modern freaks, politically correct mongers and that kind of people. You'd be furious at mere joie-de-vivre and mischievous play.

Blu-ray is a big improvement over VCR, better sound and crisper picture and that adds much to the enjoyment of watching this movie. The addition of the original French version was an unexpected bonus. The only problem was that white subtitles were often over a white background making reading impossible. Added bonus features were interesting and revealing. I had never realized that Gigi was being trained by her grandmother and aunt to be a high class prostitute!

With spectacular sets, costumes, direction, music, writing and acting, Gigi succeeds in being a total confection
for the eyes, ears, and heart..
Since it was made the term "politically incorrect" has washed over the land and movies such as Gigi are
smashed against the rocks of humourlessness and tunnel vision. It is cited that "Thank Heaven For LIttle Girls"
is an anthem for pedophiles. People, listen to the lyrics and clean up your own acts. And the comments are that
a film depicting a girl being groomed to becoming a courtesan is distasteful and should be burned. Do I have to say
this is a musical comedy depicting in the most tongue-in-cheek way the life and values of a different time. And look
at the ending, people! Despite the wishes of those who are grooming her, she does get her own way on her own terms..
