Filmmaker Jacques Demy’s delightful feature offers a sparkling score by Michel Legrand and a brilliant ensemble cast, featuring George Chakiris as one of two traveling “carnies” who have come to provincial Rochefort to present a show.  This framework, and the story’s multiple romantic subplots, offer ample opportunity for lyrical singing and sweepingdisplays of jazz dance, with Chakiris providing a bright and powerful presence.
