Lili ★★½

Leslie Caron is a lovely dancer, and the carnival setting works really well. I liked the idea of the puppet show and how it's used as a means of communication, and I particularly liked the dance finale where the puppets essentially come to life in Lili's fantasies. I just wish there was more heat to this thing, and definitely could have stood for a better leading man. Still, if you like Leslie Caron and like musicals, Lili is worth an evening of your time, even if you just end up dreaming of all it could be with a little extra love and ambition.
