UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG (LES PARAPLUIES DE CHERBOURG)

Described by director Jacques Demy as 'a film in song', the visually intoxicating The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg pays homage to the Hollywood musical in this masterpiece of French New Wave cinema. Guy Foucher (Nino Castelnuovo), a 20-year-old French auto mechanic, has fallen in love with 17-year-old Geneviève Emery (Catherine Deneuve: Belle de Jour), an employee in her widowed mother's chic but financially embattled umbrella shop. On the evening before Guy is to leave for a two-year tour of combat in Algeria, the pair share a passionate night. Geneviève becomes pregnant and then must choose between waiting for Guy's return or accepting an attractive offer of marriage from a wealthy diamond merchant (Marc Michel: Lola). 

This programme includes the Talk at 1pm-2pm and a Screening at 2.30pm. To book for the film only on this day, please contact the Box Office on 020 8232 1010.
