The fact that this film’s dialogue is entirely sung, makes it a mandatory viewing. Director Jacques Demy incorporated song and dance in the service not of escape, but of realism. The effect is riveting and profoundly moving.

Everyone should see this for several reasons: Michel Legrand’s score is superbly enchanting; Catherine Deneuve gives an outstanding, convincing and unforget... read more

Since this movie is pretty much a classic, especially in France, I was quite eager to check it out. Anyway, I thought it was pretty awesome to see Catherine Deneuve at such a young age. Indeed, she is such a terrific actress, she was already awesome back then and the more movies I watch starring this actress, the more she fascinates me. What about the movie itself ? To be honest, even though I tho... read more

A chef d'ouvre by any means. Demy is right when he had the intuition that a musical film has to be all sung or not sung at all. The tempo, the rythm, the wide spaces, all has a non terminal sadness becaase is love at youth. Deneuve is myth.

Description: Jacques Demy's haunting romantic musical is an enchanting, one-of-a-kind musical experience. It's basically a movie operetta, in which the characters sing all the dialogue (or, rather, lyrics--by director Demy) to Michel Legrand's lovely score. The story spans five years (1957-1962) in the life of Geneviéve (the ethereally beautiful Catherine Deneuve in the role that launched her to international stardom), the teenage daughter of a woman who owns a Cherbourg umbrella shop. After Geneviéve's boyfriend Guy (Nino Castelnuovo) is drafted and sent off to Algeria, she discovers she's pregnant ... and complications ensue. With its da ... (more)

"29.4. Jacques Demyn klassikkomusikaali on minulle samalla tavalla ongelmallinen tapaus kuin ohjaajansa Rochefortin tytöt. Kaikkien repliikkien laulaminen vieraannuttaa aluksi, ja kun siihen tottuu, on se vain asia jota sietää sen sijaan että siitä pitäisi. Repliikkien laulaminen on silmissäni vielä kaukana sellaisesta tavarasta, jota haluan luukuttaa nupit yhdessätoista eikä Cherbourgin sateenvarjoissa olekaan kuin ihan pari musiikkinumeroa, joita voisin kuvitella kuuntelevani mielell"

"What starts off as intro song to musical, turns into a song that never ends. It's melodramatic, whimsical and beautiful in its coloring of costumes, and sets. "
