The romantic story of Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), an American painter in Paris, who falls in love with Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron), the fiancé of his good friend Henri Baurel (George Guétari) is the plot for a charming film, with a brilliant choreography of Gene Kelly and the music of George Gershwin.
The film includes many of George Gershwin’s most popular songs such as I got rhythm, ‘S Wonderful, Love is here to stay or Nice work if you can get it. These songs can be heard with the original voices of the actors but with the sensational orchestral arrangements performed live by the Camera Musicae Symphony Orchestra, with more than 60 musicians on stage, directed by maestro Anthony Gabrielle.
