• Dir: Vincente Minnelli

  • USA, 1958, 115minmins

  • Cast: Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier,Louis Jourdan

Leslie Caron had been a charming ingénue seven years earlier in An American in Paris . Here, though, her portrayal of a schoolgirl losing her innocence in a world of courtesans demands both youth and wisdom, vulnerability and decision in heart-wrenching solos and glittering ensembles. For all the delightful froth about old love (Maurice Chevalier and Hermione Gingold) and the blasé rakes of turn-of-the-century Paris (a marvelous turn by Louis Jourdan), it is the impossible dreams of Gigi herself bind music and action to a startling discussion of love.

1959 9 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director
