A thoughtful and revealing documentary
27 August 2017 | by camille-05424See all my reviews

I saw this documentary for the first time this evening on TCM. I was not disappointed. I found Leslie Caron very open in discussing both her public and private life with great honesty. Throughout these many decades I have seen Gigi so many times I know the dialogue and music very well. If one has followed Ms. Caron's career I would highly recommend viewing this short film the next time TCM is able to showcase her work. You won't be disappointed.
