1964, Dir. Jacques Demy
with Catherine Deneuve, Nino Castelnuovo and Anne Vernon
91 min, 35mm
In this singular cinematic classic, beautiful umbrella-store clerk Genevieve (Catherine Deneuve) and charming gas station attendant Guy (Nino Castelnuovo) fall in love in the rainy coastal town of Cherbourg - but their romance is cut short when Guy is drafted into the army. French director Jacques Demy's quintessential musical love story is an explosion of color and emotion, in which every word of dialogue is sung to the melodies of beloved French composer Michel Legrand.
A special cocktail reception hosted by L'Oréal Paris will immediately follow in the "Fashion in Film" lounge.
