“Now I am alone like a disappointed lover

I wanted to see the city where I had known it

I settled there, and since then I’ve been living there

With my memories, I play hide and seek.”

Excerpt from the Song of Simon Dame (Michel Piccoli)

In Les demoiselles de Rochefort, Michel Piccoli had taken on the costume of Simon Dame, the music store manager. In one scene, Solange Garnier (Françoise Dorléac) enters this store to buy sheet music.

The man then tells him his life story. He met a beautiful young woman to whom he was engaged ten years ago. But she left him to settle in Mexico. He refused her marriage proposal because she refused the name of Madame Dame. Simon opened this store a month ago to rekindle his memories with this unknown woman. He is subjugated by the beauty of Solange.

At present, Monsieur Dame’s store is located on the site of a covered market, Bourse du Commerce. In the 19th century, Mr. Rivalland opened a store in the place where the scenes of the feature film will be shot.


Agnès Varda, director and companion of Jacques Demy, made a documentary in 1992 entitled Les demoiselles ont eu 25 ans.
