DONKEY SKIN

(1970) Monarch Jean Marais (Cocteau’s star and muse) grants his dying queen Catherine Deneuve’s last request: to remarry a princess more beautiful than herself. But when the only one who fits the bill is daughter (Deneuve again), it’s ultra-chic fairy godmother Delphine Seyrig (Last Year at Marienbad) to the rescue, disguising her as malodorous scullion “Donkey Skin.” Demy’s adaptation of a 17th-century fable by Perrault was his third Michel Legrand-scored musical and his most over-the-top in stylization. Approx. 109 min. DCP. Restored in 2013 with support of Van Cleef & Arpels, the CNC and the Domaine National de Chambord.
