Plot Summary

Delphine and Solange are two sisters living in Rochefort. Delphine is a dancing teacher and Solange composes and teaches the piano. Maxence is a poet and a painter. He is doing his military service. Simon owns a music shop, he left Paris once month ago to come back where he fell in love 10 years ago. They are looking for love, looking for each other, without being aware that their ideal partner is very close... A film whose scenario is much less important than its feeling of euphory, according to the director Jacques Demy. Written by Yepok

Quotes Delphine, Solange: [singing] We are a pair of twins born in the sign of Gemini, Mi fa so la mi re, Re mifa so so so re do, We're two demoiselles who took to the boys long ago, Mi fa so la mi re, Re mifa so so so re do.
Delphine: Our mama brought us up on her own, Working herself all her life to the bone.
Solange: To make sure our minds could expand, She's spent all her time behind a French-fry stand.
Delphine, Solange: Papa was somebody that we never knew, But when we undress one thing is true, In the small of our backs - in the very same place.
Delphine: There's the same beauty spot
Solange: He had on his face...
Delphine, Solange: We are a pair of twins born in the sign of Gemini, Mi fa so la mi re, Re mifa so so so re do, Who love catchy tunes, silly puns and repartee, Mi fa so la mi re, Re mifa so so so re do...
