Movies Houstonians Love screening: Anne Chao presents The Umbrellas of Cherbourg


Considered one of the most beautiful color films ever made, Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg — a masterpiece of music and romance and winner of the 1964 Cannes Film Festival Grand Prize — catapulted the 20-year-old Catherine Deneuve to international stardom. The memorable 1960s French romance finds an umbrella shop girl (Deneuve) distraught when her boyfriend is called for military service in Algeria, forcing her to face a life-altering decision alone. The director enlisted Michel Legrand to compose the music dialogue and songs.
