The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Umbrellas of Cherbourg

A film by Jacques Demy
Starring Catherine Deneuve, Nino Castelnuovo and Anne Vernon

Catherine Deneuve shines in Jacques Demy’s musical love story.

Beautiful umbrella-store clerk Genevieve (Catherine Deneuve) and charming gas station attendant Guy (Nino Castelnuovo) fall in love in the rainy coastal town of Cherbourg, but their romance is cut short when Guy is drafted into the army in this singular cinematic classic. French director Jacques Demy’s musical love story is an explosion of color and emotion, in which every word of dialogue is sung to melodies of beloved composer Michel Legrand.
