This is a great musical starring, among others, Leslie Caron and Maurice Chevalier. If you are a fan of musicals, don't miss out on this one, which won nine Academy awards (impressive).

The songs are fun, the acting is good...and the story is well written---while not quite believable, the story is more like a fairy tale.

Leslie Caron, as Gigi, goes from young school g... read more

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of musicals and it must be one of the few movie genres I enjoy the least but, still, I try to keep an open mind and I watch from time to time one of the classics in this genre. This time, I picked up a winner of the Best Picture Academy award directed by Vincent Minnelli, one of the masters in this genre so I thought it should be really good. Eventually, I though... read more

Description: Amazon.com essential video Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's 1958 direct-to-screen follow-up to their My Fair Lady was--miraculously--every bit as memorable as that stage smash. Set in fin-de-siècle Paris and based on a Colette story, Gigi also is about a girl (Leslie Caron) on a lower rung of society who blossoms into Cinderellahood before our eyes and ears. Thank heaven for Hermione Gingold and Maurice Chevalier as her mentors, and Louis Jourdan as her prince. The screenplay writer and lyricist Lerner always said that Gigi's title song was his favorite of all he'd written, and it's easy to see why--"Gigi" is a ... (more)

This time, I picked up a winner of the Best Picture Academy award directed by Vincent Minnelli, one of the masters in this genre so I thought it should be really good. Eventually, I thought it was indeed not bad but not much more I’m afraid. Many people argued that it was just a well made copy of ‘My Fair Lady’ but I didn’t bother me (I might have seen ‘My Fair Lady’ after this one though so it could explain why I didn’t spot the resemblance). Anyway, what really bothered me was the story itself. Indeed, you have this guy who was about 40 years old and who falls in lo” read more
