Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
