See Louis Jourdan (1921-2015) in his definitive role as wealthy Parisian playboy Gaston Lachaille. The musical features the friendship and romance of Gaston Lachaille, and Gigi. One tired of the constraints of Parisian high society, and one being schooled to become a high society mistress (you can guess which is which). It is easily one of my favourite films. The characters are charming, the music is beautiful, and luscious sets and costume are a banquet for the eyes. Gigi won a total of 9 Academy awards, including: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Music. On the whole, a sheer delight!

Cute, but best picture? What the merde, as they say in France.

"Gigi" is just a one of a kind movie! First of all, in 1959 it was chosen Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Costume Design, Best Song, and Best Musical Score. It also won 3 Golden Globe Awards that same year. Now nearly 55 years later, it still as charming with a wonderful cast of Louis Jourdan, Leslie Caron, and the great Maurice Chevalier. The latter sang "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" and "I Remember When". Both are all time classics from a musical. Alan Jay Leaner wrote "Gigi" and then went on to write "My Fair Lady". Both have become classics of the screen and the stage. I can't think of two musicals more deserving of recognition as Classic Musical Films!

Another dud, moreover the squandering of a great talent or two. As the over rated Monsieur Jourdan would say "what a bore!" Boy, I sure can pick 'em!

Great songs. But can't quite understand the relationship between a girl and a man.

an absolutely delightful musical, set in the glorious Paris of the Belle Époque, the very early 20th century, with glistening costumes, elaborate sets, and a cast to make inexhaustible magic despite the controversial topic, where Maurice Chevalier cavalierly, and ever so effortlessly, nevertheless walks away with the show, the epitome of the French boulevardier roué

Gigi. An amazing movie though not suitable for children younger than 12, has excellent music, excellent acting and excellent scenery! A Five-Star Movie!

A wonderful musical. Reminds me of a more charming version of the unbearably long My Fair Lady but with worse music. The length of this one is much shorter and Paris has never been better.
