"In a fairytale kingdom, monarch Jean Marais agrees to his dying queen's (Catherine Deneuve) last wish: he should remarry at once, but only to someone more beautiful than she. Their daughter (also played by Deneuve) is the only woman who fits the bill. Fairy godmother Delphine Seyrig conceals Deneuve as the scullery maid "Donkey Skin," until a handsome prince sees beneath her camouflage. Jacques Demy's adaptation of Charles Perrault's fable Peau d'ne was his third musical with composer Michel Legrand. (Jacques Demy, 1970, 35 mm, subtitled, 100 minutes)" Read more here.

  1. This movie's amazing. I'm so there. Can't believe it's free! I'd pay money to see it on a big screen.
