The Young Rochefort Girls - JazzWax 🎥 🍿 🎶 🎵 📀 🇫🇷

If you have a thing for Rochefort or you’ve never seen the film before, do yourself a favor and buy the DVD or Blu-Ray release that came out in 2017.

The extras include:

  • A French television interview from 1966 featuring Demy and Legrand discussing the music for the film.

  • A conversation from 2014 between Demy biographer Jean-Pierre Berthomé and costume designer Jacqueline Moreau.

  • The film’s trailer.

  • An illuminating Behind the Screen documentary about the making of the film; and a documentary from 1993 directed by Agnès Varda called THE YOUNG GIRLS TURN 25, a fascinating look back at the summer of ‘66 when time stood still in a town overrun by filmmakers, actors and dancers and painters who turned the buildings and streets into a colorful set.

  • And an essay by esteemed film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum.
