Paris, 1900. Gigi (Leslie Caron) is a young woman living with her grandmother. Gaston is a wealthy womaniser who has grown tired of the romantic intrigues, and everything else, of Paris. Gigi is sent to her Great Aunt Alicia to learn etiquette and the ways of a courtesan. Gaston is an old friend of Gigi’s family and they have known each other for a while. Gigi and Gaston are just friends but over time their relationship develops into something more.
It may not be one of Vincente Minnelli’s best, but the charming and flawlessly acted Gigi still offers enough visual and musical treats to satisfy.
