Watch the Titles: The Young Girls of Rochefort

Forget the Film, Watch the Titles

If you think nouvelle vague equals the rough-edged cinematic language by the likes of Godard and Truffaut, think again. The Young Girls of Rochefort by Jacques Demy is an homage to the great Hollywood musical. Featuring George Chakiris alongside the French diva-in-the-making Catherine Deneuve, the film and its magnificent opening sequence represents the quintessence of the French film talent of the era.
