4.0 out of 5 stars
Catherine Deneuve at her most beautiful, April 28 2004
If only life could be eternally sunny and everyone going around singing of Love!This film is GREAT! Catherine Deneuve is radiant in this.I once saw this on TV many years ago dubbed into english but I cannot find any reference to a dubbed version anywhere now? The translation was great though the original version is still excellent.I recall the scene in the cafe in the square where they're discussing the cut up body in the basket.In english it was hilarious & quite droll!
The actress who played the mother was also very good.
I found Gene Kelly a bit over the top which, in this film, is saying something!For anyone who wants some fun escapism I highly recommend this film. The musical score is beautiful, especially the "composition" by Catherine Deneuve's "sister"
