I never cry in the movies. Except for this one. If you don't go for the crying game, it is not for you. Deneuve is simply gorgeous, and a serious conteder for the most beautiful actress ever. P.S. someone here asked whatever happened to Nino Castelnuovo (Guy). Well, he was last seen in The English Patient (1996) in the role of D'Agostino.

Sorry to read about the viewer who got a bad disc - this happens to be a nice presentation of a beautiful restoration of a terrific and innovative film. Beautiful to look at and to listen to.
The extras are quirky, like the tiny bios, for instance. But all in all, a winner.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is a film of life, love and magic. It sweeps you up and involves you into a time and place of song, innocense and betrayal. A must see for those in love and those who wish to be entertained the old fashioned way. With a wonderful story!

One of the best musicals ever filmed....the art direction alone is worth having it on DVD (or any format) alone; not to mention a winning, haunting score; AND a young, stunning Catherine Deneuve.

Enjoyed it from start to finish. Romantic and charming. Has the right mixture of joy, nostalgy, and pain. Deneuve is incredibly disarming. Buy it now and play on rainy days!

For several years, my husband had been telling me how wonderful this was, so, I bought it for him for Xmas, and settled back to enjoy. My husband loved it, finding it very moving. I found it peculier, not relating to any of the characters, and thinking that the music was dreadful - it seemed to be the same tune most of the way through.
