The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Cinema Studies lecture from Jeff Hughes

The angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy. She plays an umbrella-shop owner’s delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo. When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through lilting songs by the great composer Michel Legrand, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg will be accompanied by a lecture from Jeff Hughes, graduate of the Martin Scorsese Department of Cinema Studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts

This film is part of the After the Golden Age: Movie Musicals Since 1955 series.
