Summary "Jacques Demy's crystallne debut gave birth to the fictional universe in which so many of his characters would live, play, and love. It's among his most profoundly felt films, a tale of crisscrossing lives in Nantes (Demy's hometown) that floats on waves of longing and desire.

Humane, wistful, and witty, Lola is a testament to the resilience of the heartbroken"--Container.
