4.0 out of 5 stars very French and very enjoyable, 1 April 2007
This review is from: Umbrellas Of Cherbourg: Special Edition [DVD] [1964] (DVD)
Thsi is a very pleasant and unusual film. It stars the young Catherine Deneuve in a singing role - the film is a little opera in the sense that all the dialogue is sung, though the music itself is not at all operatic but extremely light. Genevieve (Deneuve) loves Guy (Nino Castelnuovo), but he is drafted into the Army and she marries a decent older man whom she does not love. Later, Genevieve and Guy meet again in a gently poignant final scene. And that's about it! I like the way French films don't always have to tie up the loose ends but can leave things as they often are in life, not quite as they should be but ... acceptable. Deneuve sings very well, as does Castelnuovo, and it is surprising how quickly the viewer accepts the strange way in which the story is told. The film is beautifully set and quite affecting, and its unusualness is a bonus.
