The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

The first spring rain in the morning reminded me of a beautiful movie classic I have just seen lately. “Les parapluies de Cherbourg” with Catherine Deneuve from 1964.

The movie shows the struggle of two young lovers. A simple but touching story especially because of the sung dialogue and the bright colours and patterns which guide the audience through a dreamlike world.

I love the pastel tones of sweet Genevieve played by Catherine Deneuve, the red costumed mum showing dominance and strength and the psychedelic patterns of their home.
