French (English subtitles)
Director Jacques Demy's enchanting French musical is a bittersweet story of young love, told entirely in song, without a single word of spoken dialogue. 17-year-old Genevieve helps her widowed mother in the umbrella shop. She is secretly in love with Guy, a car mechanic and they spend the night together before he leaves to serve in the army. Genevieve falls pregnant, but with Guy away at war, her mother encourages her to marry a wealthy gem merchant and forget her first love. PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg you may receive a disc marked as being a 15 certificate however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a U. INTO FILM has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not the additional features or audio commentaries etc), the film can be treated as a U certificate in a school setting.
Less well-known than the captivating Umbrellas of Cherbourg, this delightful musical drama is as full of Demy's signature colours and romanticism.
