Mark Steyn on The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Mark Steyn, that connoisseur of all things musical, has just posted a love letter to Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964), starring Catherine Deneuve. FWIW, I happened to review this film myself, back in my student-reporter days, when the restored edition came out in the mid-1990s; you can read my review on page 12 of this PDF file, but it’s Steyn’s write-up that has me itching to see the film again. (I have a copy of the soundtrack album, but it doesn’t come with subtitles!)
