Fashionable Film: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is an unabashedly romantic love story about the tragic relationship between a young couple, Geneviève and Guy (played by Catherine Deneuve and Nino Castelnuovo, respectively).  Set in the small port city of Cherbourg in Normandy, France, the entire story is told through song, and the cinematography matches this sweeping feeling with lush, saturated colors, and stunning shots of the young lovers.  It is a perfect reminder of the beauty of life and love, even on our darkest days.
