All the world loves lovers, and in Geneviève and Guy Jacques Demy created two of cinema’s most memorable. There are many reasons for this. Geneviève and Guy inhabit a world that sears itself on your retina, a happy Edward Hopper world coloured by Mondrian. A musical without spoken dialogue, the film is driven by the exquisite continuous score of the great Michel Legrand, who sadly left us this year. Impossibly handsome they may be, Geneviève (Catherine Deneuve) and Guy (Nino Castelnuovo), but our young lovers have been given a story of real weight, one that will melt the frostiest heart. DOM

In partnership with the Embassy of France in Ireland.
