Donkey Skin (Peau d'âne)
Directed by Jacques Demy, 1970, 1h31
With Catherine Deneuve, Jean Marais

A young princess in a faraway land (an ultra-radiant Deneuve) must flee from the sinister designs of her father the king (Marais), taking along only her fairy godmother (Seyrig) and the skin of her father’s magical donkey. Catherine Deneuve, Jacques Demy, and Michel Legrand, the star, director, and composer of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Young Girls of Rochefort reunited for this charming fantasy, one of the most extravagant of all film musicals. A dazzler, an entrancingly beautiful film done with charm, delicacy, taste and high imagination.

Film in French with English subtitles
