Voted number 14 in The Guardian's Best Romantic Film of All Time. Described by director Jacques Demy as a film in song', the visually intoxicating The Umbrellas of Cherbourg pays homage to the Hollywood musical in this masterpiece of French New Wave cinema. Guy Foucher (Nino Castelnuovo), a 20-year-old French auto mechanic, has fallen in love with 17-year-old Geneviá¨ve Emery (Catherine Deneuve: Belle de Jour), an employee in her widowed mother's chic but financially embattled umbrella shop. On the evening before Guy is to leave for a two-year tour of combat in Algeria, the pair share a passionate night. Geneviá¨ve becomes pregnant and then must choose between waiting for Guy's return or accepting an attractive offer of marriage from a wealthy diamond merchant (Marc Michel: Lola).
