Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964, Jacques Demy)

The first time I was too blown away by how wonderful this movie is, so entranced by its beauty and mesmerized by the entirely-sung dialogue to quite believe what I was seeing and hearing. Knew I’d have to see it again soon to make sure the dream was true. Still a nearly perfect movie… even more so now that I understand the singing and the flow and the story, and can just get caught up in it. No need to recount the plot – I know it too well. One of my favorite movies ever, for sure now. Guess I’m ready to see The Young Girls of Rochefort.
