Lola, a cabaret dancer, is raising a boy whose father, Michel, left seven years ago. She is waiting for him. She sings, dances and occasionally becomes intimate with passing sailors. Roland Cassard, a childhood friend rediscovered by chance, falls deeply in love with her. But she is waiting for Michel...

LOLA is a 1961 film, the debut film directed by Jacques Demy as a tribute to director Max Ophüls and is described by Demy as a "musical without music".

“It’s like Italy: once you’ve seen it you want to go back and see it again.” JEAN-LUC GODARD

“Lola, I like the fact that all young cinematographers do not follow the same well-trodden path. Here we have again some new blood. Jacques Demy relates a kind of realistic fairytale in which Anouk Aimée proves magnificent; a fairytale that symbolizes the nursery of ‘sad sailors’ and ‘filles de joie’ who together dream of a mysterious purity.” JEAN COCTEAU
