DONKEY SKIN | Out Now

Based on Charles Perrault’s Cinderella, Donkey Skin is a wonderfully bizarre story concerning the king (Marais) of a strange and enchanted land. When his wife dies, she makes the king promise he’ll never marry anyone less beautiful than she; thus, he is compelled to wed his own daughter (Deneuve). A bizarre, one-of-a-kind fantasy from director Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg), Donkey Skin features lush cinematography and Deneuve singing four musical numbers from the masterful Michel Legrand.
