The Young Girls of Rochefort ★★★★½

This is one of those times I desperately wish I spoke French, because the ability to take in the beautiful images on screen without having to constantly draw your eyes to the subtitles almost seems like a privilege. Despite this small hindrance in an otherwise magical viewing experience, I loved every minute of Young Girls. It was everything I wanted The Umbrellas of Cherbourg to be, and much, much more. I love the sensation of being transported into a colorful, sun-soaked dream, one that contrasts so sharply to my gray, dull September afternoon. I’m so happy I finally watched this.

4.3/5
