      The Romantic March to the Death of a Spoiled Child

      Blue is not only the warmest color, not only the color of freedom, but also represents a kind of extreme romance; from the realistic care of Abu D'Akshish's North African immigrant, to Chier's elevation of the French national spirit to the paradigm of philosophical thinking, Going back all the way, this colorful "Liu Mei Hua Jiao" is still a pure light blue in the bones.

             Jacques Demy's French musical, the iron-clad Catherine Deneuve, who competes with François Dorie, and the...

      1967 Les Demoiselles de Rochefort - Willows (France) (colour)

      1967 Les Demoiselles de Rochefort - Liu Mei Hua Jiao (France) (Colour)

      Today I would like to share the above nostalgic musical.

      When watching this movie, it reminds me of Singing In The Rain. Between the two, I still prefer Singing In The Rain.
      But I also like "Liu Mei Hua Jiao", which is a very typical nostalgic musical.
      Each action is clearly carefully crafted.
      Looking at the popular dance styles of the 1960s in France, I think of Hong Kong, the dancers...

      Feel free to watch movies

      I just watched a few of the director's musicals, the most famous "The Umbrella of Cherbourg", which made Catherine Deneuve popular. I watched this film because there were comments that many scenes in "La La Land" paid tribute to the film "Liu Mei Hua Jiao", and for a while I was very interested in the early acting career of the documentary director Jacques Behan , just found this film to watch. The whole film has the distinctive characteristics of the director. Colors are bright, clean...

      French musicals are different from American musicals in that they have inherent temperament in addition to bright colors, good music, and beautiful characters. "Liu Mei Hua Jiao" is a love story, it's very eye-catching to watch, and the plot of coincidence is too made up.
      But still willing to feel this sunshine-like atmosphere - beautiful and slightly sad, plus the old-fashioned subtitle translation. I remembered another French musical "The Umbrella of Cherbourg" that I watched a long...

      Easy and eye-catching old movie

      I have watched too many dull and depressing literary and artistic films recently. I wanted to find some relaxing and eye-catching old movies to change my mood. I happened to watch "Sister Riding the Wind and Waves" and watched it again, and I remembered the first sister Catherine Deneuve of this French movie. The classic work "Liu Mei Hua Jiao" in its peak period, let's take a look at my sister Kai's appearance when she was young. I really feel that she was killed by her eyes at a glance....

      Sister Fufumei is even more beautiful. Under the gorgeous coat of singing and dancing, there is a never-give-up wait for love. I always feel that there is still a little bit of a difference, maybe because of the language or because Legrand is not as immersive as...

      It's better than "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" as a musical. Picturesquely beautiful, Gene Kelly actually felt romantic when she came...

      Deneuve + Dorie! To be fair, this one is so much better than [The Umbrellas in Cherbourg]; watching Jim Kelly come on, there's a thrill of seeing Mastroianni Anita reunited in [interview]; "Oh, c'est Jules et Jim!"; Mark of Demi: the sailor who wants to go back to Nantes, the brothers who met Cherbourg, the dismembered Lola... In addition, Daniel Dario, the queen of his idol Orpheus, was also...

      This kind of musical is escapist. There are no material, health or interpersonal problems in it, only love and dreams. Watching them wear bright clothes and stretch their limbs in an open place, happy and carefree, is enviable. The French are so romantic, and the presence of Jim Kelly was a pleasant surprise. The story is that people who are meant to meet will eventually...
