Jacques Demy, 1961. 90 min. B&W. DCP VOSTA. Restored Version. With Anouk Aimée, Marc Michel, Jacques Harden.
In French with English subtitles.
Featuring the radiant Anouk Aimée as a cabaret singer waiting in vain for a long-lost love, Lola is a sweeping tale of lovelorn souls in the seaside town of Nantes. Shot in stunning black and white Cinemascope and chock-full of classic movie references, Demy’s beguiling debut drowns its melancholy in a masterfully stylish command of the art of cinema. Famously described by its director as a “musical without music,” it is the most lyrical of French New Wave masterpieces.
