Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Just in time for Valentine’s Day—a beautiful umbrella-store clerk, Genevieve (a luminous Catherine Deneuve), and an auto mechanic, Guy (Nino Castelnuovo), fall in love in the rainy town of Cherbourg, but their romance is compromised when Guy is drafted into the army and Genevieve is pursued by a wealthy diamond merchant. The drama-drenched film classic plays like a day-glo pop-art opera, with the entire script sung to the melodies of composer Michel Legrand. Shown in 35 mm. In French with English subtitles. Introduced by Matt Socey of WFYI. Come early and enjoy dinner with your valentine at Nourish Café. (dir. J. Demy, 1964, France, 91 mins., NR)
