i loved how harsh yet truthful it was to every single one of it’s characters
This is where I leave you drinking game
take a shot every time:
-Jane Fonda’s breasts are mentioned
-someone makes a borderline sexual joke
-Tina Fey says wise shit
-someone is talking about pregnancy or getting pregnant
-you can’t believe how similar to your family everything is
-this film reminds August: Osage county
-that boy is pooping
this is the saddest film in the world, the ending scene is just heartbreaking, and bette's performance is the best performance ever given on screen, that whole scene where jane starts screaming and sobbing after seeing herself in the mirror has earned this movie a place in the history
Every time I rewatch this film it get's me like it's the first time. This well-written, well-acted, well-sung and well-danced film is a real treasure.
I love Jacques Demy because of how he manages to make a film that features (as something actually on screen or something that's just being mentioned) loneliness, war, single-parenting (in 50's—60's), a bunch of sexual relationships (either unhappy or brief affairs), even an axe-murder, and it is still a joyful, cheerful movie.
I love how well "Les demoiselles de Rochefort" show a feeling of being young and hoping, knowing that happiness is waitimg for you around the corner.
