I’m starting to believe I’m a francophile.
This performance/song is brilliant on all levels.
And Françoise Dorléac is Catherine Deneuve’s sister. BOMBSHELL.
The two sisters starred together in the 1967 musical, The Young Girls of Rochefort. Her other films include Philippe de Broca‘s movie L’Homme de Rio, François Truffaut‘s La Peau douce, Roman Polanski‘s Cul-de-sac and Val Guest‘s Where the Spies Are.
On 26 June 1967, she lost control of the rented Renault 10 she was driving and hit a signpost ten kilometres from Nice at the Villeneuve-Loubet exit of the highway La Provençale. The car flipped over, and burst into flames. She had been en route to Nice airport and was afraid of missing her flight. Françoise was seen struggling to get out of the car, but was unable to open the door. Police later identified her body only from the fragment of a cheque book, a diary and her driver’s licence.
Fuck, I love tragic heroines.
