3rd French Film evening: 8th March 2019

 ‘Les Parapluies de Cherbourg’


‘Les Parapluies de Cherbourg’ is a film by Jacques Demy, starring Catherine Deneuve, set against the backdrop of the Algerian war.  Deneuve plays a young woman, working in her mother’s [struggling] umbrella shop. She meets and falls in love with a mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo, who is drafted into the war.  She discovers that she is pregnant, but, unsure of her future, she marries an older man.

This masterpiece of film is unusual, in that all the dialogue is sung; Demy called it a film in song. It won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 1964, making composer Michel Legrand a household name for his beautiful music. With his recent death, it is a tribute to him that we are screening ‘Les Parapluies de Cherbourg’ for our next film night.

7.00 pm for a 7.30 pm finish adults will pay £7 and there will be a concession for students at £5, with the usual drink and nibbles.  Payment will be taken at the at the door.
