at the home of Naïry Digris and Terry McGibbon:

1703 Skillman Ave W, Roseville, MN 55113

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Director: Jaques Demy, Music by French-Armenian composer Michel Legrand,

(Legrand's mother was Marcelle der Mikaelian)

1964, 131 mins (French w/subtitles)

Rated 97% at Rotten Tomatoes, this musical won the Palme d'Or at Cannes and was nominated for 5 Oscars, including best musical score. Like an opera, every word of dialogue is in song. Delightfully playful, it stars a 20-year old Catherine Deneuve, in the film that launched her to international stardom. The prolific Michel Legrand, Armenian French composer and jazz pianist (1932-2019) wrote the score, along with over 200 more film scores. This musical love story "elevates the basic drama of everyday life into a soaring opera full of bittersweet passion and playful charm." This month the Cannes film festival will debut a documentary on Legrand's life and work.
