The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, which won Best Film at Cannes the year of its release, comes up with regularity in film buff's lists of favourites, less I would believe because of easily-won satisfactions than because of its remarkably daring choice of having the dialogue entirely sung. BH

DVD Extras: An extract from Agnes Varda’s documentary about her husband and 4 teasers for Demy films including, besides Les Parapluies, The Young Girls of Rochefort, Donkey’s Skin and A Slightly Pregnant Man.
