THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG
July 10, 2017 @ 6:45 pm
“The Umbrellas of Cherbourg has stood the test of time as beautifully as Deneuve and seems likely to enchant future generations as fully as it has audiences over the past decades.” – Los Angeles Times
“It’s a glorious sight to behold.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
“Touching and knowing and, like Deneuve, ageless.” – Roger Ebert
Geneviève (Catherine Deneuve), a beautiful young Frenchwoman who works at a small-town boutique selling umbrellas, falls for dashing mechanic Guy (Nino Castelnuovo). Their brief romance is interrupted when Guy is drafted to serve in the Algerian War. Though pregnant by Guy, Geneviève marries an older businessman, Roland (Marc Michel), and begins to move on with her life.
Dir. Jacques Demy. 1964. 91 min.
