Before La La Land: Jacques Demy Re-Mastered
The glorious French masterpieces of Jacques Demy have been fully re-mastered into a high-definition Blu-ray nirvana. His films, a triumph of visual and sound design, camera work and music, are galvanized by the great stars of French cinema, including Anouk Aimee, Catherine Deneuve, Dominique Sanda, and Jeanne Moreau. World film presents the following French masterpieces: "Lola" is Demy's crystalline debut that gave birth to the fictional universe in which so many of his characters would live, play and love. "Bay of Angels (La Baie des Anges)" is the dark journey into the world of the gambling addict and the risks and obsessions of its players. "Donkey Skin (Peau d'Ane)" is the lovingly crafted and wildly eccentric adaptation of a classic French fairy tale. "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Les Parpluies de Cherbourg)" is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time. "The Young Girls of Rochefort (Les demoiselles de Rochefort)" is an effervescent musical confection about missed connections and second chonces. The glorious musical scores of Michel Legrand embellish each of these films.

It received nin Cesar Award nominations and features a rich operatic score by Michel Colombier. 5 sessions @ 3 hrs each.
