In collaboration with Project Film School and Brooklyn Sour
LES PARAPLUIES DE CHERBOURG (1964) / Directed by Jacques Demy
introduced by Gina Telaroli
Jacques Demy’s 1964 masterpiece The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is a pop-art opera, or, to borrow the director’s own description, a film in song. This simple romantic tragedy begins in 1957. Guy Foucher (Nino Castelnuovo), a 20-year-old French auto mechanic, has fallen in love with 17-year-old Genevive Emery (a luminous Catherine Deneuve), an employee in her widowed mother’s chic but financially embattled umbrella shop. A completely sung movie, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is closest in form to a cinematic opera. Composer Michel Legrand composed the score, modeling it around the patterns of everyday conversation.
