Three sentence movie review: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
I didn’t get a heads up that this is one of those films where they sing all the way through–not my favorite. It’s a beautifully composed story, the colors pop, and it’s worth watching just for the wallpaper.* It’s an emotional film, and quite enjoyable.
Cost: free via Vimeo. (Sometimes the subtitles blipped very quickly, so I couldn’t read them. This was annoying, but I still got the gist)
Where watched: at home
I watched this so I could listen to the Next Picture Show podcast pairing this movie with La La Land.

I remember this playing in Portland. Maybe for the 40-year anniversary? That would’ve been in 2004, so the timeline makes sense. I never saw it though.
I’m still thinking about that wallpaper!
Isn’t it amazing to think of the AD’s vision being executed all the way down to the wallpaper? Movies are such a collective effort. A couple of PAs made sure that stunning detail was part of the larger mix.
