The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Not Your Average Musical
(NR) France/West Germany – 1 hr 31 min – with subtitles  
1964 · d. Jacques Demy   Reviews
Starring Catherine Deneuve, Nino Castelnuovo, Anne Vernon, Marc Michel

The starry-eyed romance between an umbrella shop clerk (Catherine Deneuve) and a mechanic (Nino Castelnuovo) runs up against the practical problems of pregnancy and the draft. Set to composer Michel Legrand’s score, this “film in song” pairs its pop-art palette with wise and worldly depth, paving the way for 2017’s La La Land

Shown in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg will be introduced by Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
