This is a weird one. Not quite a musical but really a melodrama either, Lili exists somewhere in the netherworld between those twin points. Lili (Leslie Caron) is a young girl, roughly sixteen, recently orphaned who runs off to the carnival. Here she meets a magician (Jean-Pierre Aumont), his jealous wife (Zsa Zsa Gabor), and a brooding puppeteer (Mel Ferrer). It is through the relationship with t... read more
View all Lili reviews
Leslie Caron stars as the title character, a vulnerable orphan waif who finds a home with the puppet show in a traveling circus—and the love of a magician (Jean-Pierre Aumont) who, at first, can only open his heart through the deeds and words of his marionettes. But Lili is just another conquest for the magician, who returns to his wife (Zsa Zsa Gabor). The marionettes, however, console and care for Lili with a tenderness that slowly reawaken love within the young woman.
Release date: 10 July 1953

“This is a weird one. Not quite a musical but really a melodrama either, Lili exists somewhere in the netherworld between those twin points. Lili (Leslie Caron) is a young girl, roughly sixteen, recently orphaned who runs off to the carnival. Here she meets a magician (Jean-Pierre Aumont), his jealous wife (Zsa Zsa Gabor), and a brooding puppeteer (Mel Ferrer). It is through the relationship with the puppets in the show that Lili not only blossoms, but the puppeteer is able to communicate his love for her.   Yeah, that last bit is a bit skeevy not matter who you try to look at or frame it. Mel Ferrer smolders with an intense, dark sexuality that makes him appear like a hungry wolf leering over Caron’s innocent lamb, even when the script is not intending that. As it stands, the love sto” read more

"A surprisingly gross love triangle takes center stage in Lili,as the titular 16-year old ends up in a circus because her crush, the 43-year old Jean-Pierre Aumont, reluctantly gets her a job. The man could give less shits about this lady, as in he isn't interested in even the slightest fling. She's dreaming of surrealist dance numbers with her future hubby as she gets into a puppeteering act spearheaded by the 36-year old Mel Ferrer, who repeatedly makes it clear that he sees Lili as the 8-year "
