Les parapluies de Cherbourg


What if there's

an emergency?

What is happening,

isn't it an emergency?

Impossible! If I'd sell

my jewels, I'd feel...

stripped and naked:

Find something else:

Something else?

We have nothing:

Then, sell the shop:


What will we live on?

After all, a jewel is just a jewel:

Should I change

my hair style?

My engagement ring...

It's atrocious:

This bracelet...

I could never wear it:

Nobody will want that:

And your necklace?

My necklace, you think?

That'd be a crime:

No, I'll never part with it:

Anyway, it's probably fake:

Come on! After all,

it's not that pretty:

This afternoon,

we will go to Mr: Dubourg:

Then I'll have my hair done:

How beautiful!

Truly marvelous:

Isn't it?

This is a mighty stone...

if I may say so...

Here are

rubies, sapphires, emeralds:

Ali Baba's cave:

The jewels...

of Sleeping Beauty:

Hello, Mrs:

Hello, Miss Genevive:

Hello, Mr:

Allow me...


The young miss...

has become very pretty:

It's been such a long time...

since I had the pleasure...

But what can I do for you?

You may speak frankly:

We are in

an embarrassing situation:

Genevive helps me

as much as she can:

It has nothing to do with her:

But I have heavy expenses

and I thought...


I have a payment to meet

and if I don't,

consequences will be dire:

So I come to you

as to my savior...

I hesitated a long time,

and Genevive,

who is the voice

of wisdom and reason,

persuaded me...

It breaks my heart

to be forced to give up

this jewel, which to me


I understand, dear Madame,

but my business is risky

and I take many risks...

At best, I can put

your necklace up for sale,

but for much less

than its real worth:

I cannot buy it myself:

Couldn't you at least

give me an advance?

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…
