Edgar Wright says:

Here's one to bring a date to.  I am a big fan of musicals and chances to see them in their big screen glory are all too rare, so this is a treat for me.  I've heard about Jacques Demy's film since I was in school, missed the re-issue and didn't want to see it on a small screen.  So this is a thrill.  And its perfect partner is Wong Kar-Wai's 1994 film CHUNGKING EXPRESS.  Ironically, I saw both ASHES OF TIME and FALLEN ANGELS on their original release, but missed this one.  I even own two copies of it on DVD, but again, a big screen outing was always calling me.  Am preparing to swoon.

Screening hosted by Edgar Wright & James Gunn
