The Umbrellas of Cherbourg from 1964: What A Treat

Saw the restored original "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" on DVD last night with the incomparable very young Catherine Deneuve and all dialogue SUNG to challenging (effortlessly delivered) melodies and score by Michel Legrand. Very hip and brighter than those little hearts we used to give at Valentine's Day. It was an early 60s French fable wrapped up in a jazzy-chamber opera musical package. Check it out.
