Catherine Deneuve and Johnny Halliday - Magic Together
26 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

O.K. this is not a great film. But, the Catherine Deneuve/Johnny Halliday segment is so worth waiting for. Halliday serenades Catherine with the beautiful Azvanour song "Retien la Nuit" (Hold back the Night). The wonderful Catherine wears the typical French girl teen fashion of the time - a white shirt and plaid skirt - wow. I saw this film in London when I was eighteen years old and its effect on me was quite profound. Of I went to Paris and got myself a job as a monitor for the summer in a U.N.E.S.C.O hostel on the Left Bank. I also found myself a French girl friend- Chantal. This film brings back some great memories for me.
