5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! You'll love it!
This could be the most beautiful, unique, romantic movie ever made. Every bit of dialogue is sung (but there are no "musical" numbers), and it's filmed in VIVID pastels, beautifully restored in this print (the film was originally released in 1964, and was the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prize winner). In French, with English subtitles, Letterbox (1.66:1, so it...

1.0 out of 5 stars Unlucky..
This review only concerns technical details of this particular DVD edition. Lots of good words were said about the movie itself and I just join my thumbs up with thousands raised before.
But this movie has bad luck with DVD, apparently. First, I bought a russian edition of "Les Parapluies" on DVD. I just could not play that disc at all, it had physical...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beauty, April 9 2001
This review is from: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (DVD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Film of Life, Love & Magic. . ,, Sept. 16 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (DVD)
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best film ever.., Jan. 1 2000
This review is from: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (DVD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely charming, Jan. 1 2003

This review is from: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (DVD)
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Strange film, Jan. 16 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (DVD)
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.
