aka: Peau d'âne
France 1970, 85 minutes
Dir. Jacques Demy
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Family / Fantasy, Musical

Topics: Fairytale.


Aroview: A vibrant, whimsical and genuinely fantastic adaptation of Perrault's classic 17th century fairy tale in which a Princess (Deneuve) disguises herself as a donkey in order to evade the misplaced attentions of her deranged father (Marais).

Dir. Demy (UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG) combines the realistic locations of actual French chateaux with colourful costumery, cinema trickery and a wry sense of humour to bring Perrault's sophisticated sensibility to the screen.
