Opening Night screening:

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Les parapluies de Cherbourg, Jacques Demy, France/West Germany 1964, 35mm (PG)

Catherine Deneuve in an enchanting tale of young love menaced by parental ambition, unwanted pregnancy and the Algerian War – with Demy’s dialogue sung throughout to Legrand’s melodious score. Rich pastel colours and unostentatiously fluid cinematography situate the proceedings in a magical territory somewhere between reality and fairy tale. The ending, especially, is unforgettable. “Few Hollywood-style musicals ever wove beauty, irony, and sadness into such a bittersweet emotional tapestry.” – Christian Science Monitor AFS thanks Time Out Bookstore Ltd
