RIP Michel Legrand

It was sad to hear of the death of Michel Legrand (1932-2019) on Saturday. Legrand wrote the music to countless films, many from French New Wave cinema. His music fits perfectly the stylish and witty reinterpretation of Perrault’s fairy tale ‘Donkey Skin’, Peau d’Ane (1970) directed by Legrand’s frequent collaborator Jacques Demy. Here’s a scene from the film with one of Legrand’s songs, featuring the enchanting Catherine Deneuve.
