Les parapluies de Cherbourg


The thing is,

you have plenty of time:

You think you are in love:

But love is something different:

You do not just fall

in love with a face

that you've seen in the street:

He is a young man

whom I've met several times

and he loves me:

We want to get married:

You do not answer?

I am flabbergasted:

I went with him

to the theater last night:


So you lied to me and...

you admit it

without any shame:

There is no shame

in wanting to get married:

At your age, there is...

well, no...

You are a little girl,

very little:

You know nothing:

It's not with what you taught me

that I can manage:

When I married your Dad,

I knew nothing:

That's not something

to brag about:

The paint shop, please?

Next door:

How old is he?



he hasn't been in the army:

He lives with his godmother,

the lady who raised him:

He only has me,

and you will see,

he is very handsome:

I will see nothing at all:

But Mother...

Go upstairs to the apartment:

It is time to fix lunch:


We are ruined!

You always exaggerate:

80,000 francs I have to pay

before the 15th:
Is that funny?

And if you don't pay?

They will seize our property:

I will get a job:

What sort of a job?


Post Office or City Hall?

Why not?

You understand,

if I get married,

Guy and I will work,

and we will help you:

But, my little girl,

it is out of the question

for you to marry:

Take that away:

You're in my way:


what can he do?

Can he support you?

Raise children?

He's not rich:

We will live modestly,

and we won't have

children right away:

No, but one at least:

He is not the one

who will pay my taxes:

There isn't a penny left

in the till:

Sell your jewels:

My jewels, never!

What good are they?

You don't even look at them:

Jacques Demy

Jacques Demy (French: [ʒak dəmi]; 5 June 1931 – 27 October 1990) was a French director, lyricist, and screenwriter. He appeared in the wake of the French New Wave alongside contemporaries like Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut. Demy's films are celebrated for their sumptuous visual style. Demy's style drew upon such diverse sources as classic Hollywood musicals, the documentary realism of his New Wave colleagues, fairy-tales, jazz, Japanese manga, and the opera. His films contain overlapping continuity (i.e., characters cross over from film to film), lush musical scores (typically composed by Michel Legrand) and motifs like teenaged love, labor rights, incest, and the intersection between dreams and reality. He is best known for the two musicals he directed in the mid-1960s: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) and The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967). more…
