Jacques Demy Storbritannia, 1972

Stefan Drees's rating of the film The Pied Piper

One of Jacques Demy's weaker films. It doesn't even come near to his much more convincing fairy tale "Peau d'âne" (1970) although it scores with its very sombre atmosphere. It's nice to see Donovan performing some songs and playing the Pied Piper, but it would have been even nicer to have a better actor in this role.
