Gigi

Synopsis: Weary of the conventions of Parisian society, a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoy a platonic friendship, but it may not stay platonic for long. Gaston, the scion of a wealthy Parisian family finds emotional refuge from the superficial lifestyle of upper class Parisian 1900s society with the former mistress of his uncle and her outgoing, tomboy granddaughter, Gigi. When Gaston becomes aware that Gigi has matured into a woman, her grandmother and aunt, who have educated Gigi to be a wealthy man's mistress, urge the pair to act out their roles but love adds a surprise twist to this delightful turn-of-the 20th century Cinderella story.

-Goodbye, Grandmama.

-Goodbye, Gigi.

--more powerful, monsieur.

Sixty kilometers an hour!

There's nothing faster on the road,

monsieur. Not here or in America.

Your uncle is here, monsieur.

Of course, the smaller is

a first-rate machine, monsieur.

Naturally, the larger one

is more expensive.

l'd be happy to

demonstrate both.

l beg your pardon, Monsieur Gaston.

Your father wanted me to ask you. . .

. . .did you, by any chance, buy the

Paris-Lyon-Mditerrane Railroad?

The Paris-Lyon-Md--?

Yes, yes, l did.

According to this morning's

opening at la Bourse...

. . .it's gone up 1 2 points.

l thought it would.

Monsieur Lachaille, about the car.

Send it over in the morning

with the bill.

Yes, monsieur. Thank you.

But which one?

My dear fellow, l don't care.

Either one.

l'm sorry l kept you waiting, Uncle.

Why didn't you come upstairs?

l was afraid l'd meet

my brother and sister-in-law.

-You would have.

-l have to tell you. . .

. . .your parents bore me to death.

-Me too.

-But l've known them longer. . .

. . .so they've been boring me longer.

After you.

Your father is actually quite unique.

He was a bore at the age of 5.

All he has to say is, ''Hello,''

and l can barely keep my eyes open.

Armenonville.

l waited for you at the embassy

last Sunday. What happened?

The thought of another embassy tea

paralyzed me.

lnstead, l had tea with an old friend

Madame Alvarez.

-Madame Alvarez?

-Yes, you know her.

Or knew her once, didn't you?

-Does she say l did?

-l think she's mentioned it.

Then l suppose l did.

lt's the one place in Paris

where l can go and relax.

Whose luncheon are you

taking me to today?

Henri Trouvre.

We have to go.

l'm meeting a heavenly creature there.

You're still young, Uncle, aren't you?

Not compared to her.
