The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)

  • umbrellacms

France | 92 min | G | DCP | Dir. Jacques Demy

Catherine Deneuve 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.

"Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg retains its direct appeal to the eyes, ears, and tear ducts after nearly five decades, with an emotionalism that’s shameless but never crass." -Bill Weber (Slant) 

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
