The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

  1. Saturday, August 30, 2014 3:00 p.m.
Jacques Demy’s bittersweet musical is a treasure of French cinema and launched the five-decade-long career of star Catherine Deneuve. In a small coastal town, lovers Geneviève (Deneuve) and Guy (Nino Castelnuovo) have their affections tested by class differences, war in Algeria, and the unstoppable marches of time and growing up. Featuring a haunting and unorthodox score by Michel Legrand (all of the dialogue is recitatively sung), Umbrellas is romance as only the cinema could present. In French language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)
