FRA | 1964 | dir. Jacques Demy, with Catherine Deneuve, Nino Castelnuovo

Guy, an auto mechanic, has fallen in love with Geneviève, who works in her mother’s chic umbrella shop. Before Guy is to leave for a tour of combat, the two share a passionate night. Winner of the Palme d’Or in Cannes 1964, Jacques Demy’s visually intoxicating ‘film in song’ pays homage to the Hollywood musical and is a major influence on directors including Damien Chazelle and Wes Anderson.
