Catherine Deneuve hit the streets of NYC last weekend for the annual Rendezvous with French Cinema Film Festival. I was at the Paris Theater Thursday for the Opening Night debut of her new film "On My Way". Then on Friday night, I was "on my way" to Brooklyn to catch up with Mlle Deneuve for a repeat screening at BAM Cinematek - on Brooklyn's Left Bank. What can I say - looking fantastique.
After her Q&A following the film, BAM was showing a Deneuve favorite - "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg", directed by the great Jacques Demy in 1964. On the subway ride back from Brooklyn, Michele Legrand's theme music from that film was rolling through my head. Here then is the fabulous final scene with Catherine Deneuve - apropos of our long cold winter.
