The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, DVD



A story of lost love, with all the dialogue sung rather than spoken.

In the French seaside town of Cherbourg, Genevieve (Catherine Deneuve, in her first screen role) discovers that she is pregnant by her boyfriend, Guy (Nino Castelnuovo).

When Guy is drafted into the army, Genevieve marries diamond merchant Roland Cassard (Marc Michel), even though she still loves Guy.

She is destined for one last encounter with her true love, in a frosty Esso gas station.
