"The Umbrellas of Cherbourg"
Directed by Jacques Demy
Demy's 1964 Cannes Film Festival Grand Prize winning masterpiece tells the
ageless fairy tale of doomed love. Catherine Deneuve
stars in this sumptuously photographed romantic musical of two lovers who are split up by
the Algerian war. The girl marries another when she discovers she is pregnant. He also
marries; yet they meet again. All dialog is sung; with haunting music by Michel LeGrand
and lyrics by Demy, including the song, "I Will Wait for You." "A
masterpiece! More beautiful and more startling than ever!" (New York Daily News).
"The kind of movie that audiences will remember all their lives" (Chicago
Tribune). French with English subtitles. Color. Letterbox.
