As lush, romantic, emotional, and rapturous a film as could be imagined, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is an equally joyful and melancholy ode to young love as Catherine Deneuve falls for a mechanic who goes off to war. Most famously, every line of dialogue in the film—from car mechanics’ banter to young lovers’ vows—is sung, but the vivid colors, elegant cinematography, and luscious score are equally memorable. (91 mins., DCP) Jacques Demy followed up Umbrellas with another musical, The Young Girls of Rochefort, which stars Catherine Deneuve and her real-life sister Françoise Dorléac as twins who dream of the big city. Another film about missed connections and second chances, Young Girls features a more effervescent tone and an optimism that’s a tribute to classic Hollywood musicals (and indeed Gene Kelly and cast members from West Side Story make appearances). (126 mins., DCP)
