The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
11 Mar 2019 - 17 Mar 2019
This musical is a French homage to the Hollywood musical by director Jaques Demy (and an influence on recent Hollywood film La La Land).
Catherine Deneuve, in her first major role, plays a girl head over heels in love with “Guy” who is sent to do military service. This bittersweet film is now considered one of the classics of cinema for its bold design, and use of music and lyrics: all the dialogue is sung, and the sets are vivid and theatrical 1960s Technicolor.
Director: Jacques Demy. Stars: Catherine Deneuve, Anne Vernon, Nino Castelnuovo. Duration: 95 minutes. Rated PG.
Films screen in the Hazelhurst theatrette every Monday at 6.30pm, Thursday at 11am & 2pm, and Sunday at 2pm for members of the Hazelhurst Film Club.
