Les parapluies de Cherbourg





Is it finished?

The engine still knocks

when it's cold, but that's normal:


Can you stay an extra hour?

Tonight, it's a problem:

But I think Pierre is free:

Pierre, can you stay tonight?

Check the ignition

on the gentleman's Mercedes:

Are you coming to the game?

No, I can't:

Are you going?


Aubin asked me

to stay overtime... No way!

Tonight is special!

I'm going to the theater:

What are they playing?


I don't like operas:

Movies are better:

I'm going dancing tonight:

Give me a smoke:

All that singing

gives me a pain:

I like movies better:

You've said so already:

See you tomorrow:

My love...

Oh my love:


my little Genevive:

Guy, I love you:

You smell of gasoline:

It's just another perfume:

Guy, I love you

Oh Guy, I love you:

A customer, I must run:

See you at 8

in front of the theater:

I've thought of you all day!

Would you like

to go dancing later?

If you wish:

Can I help you?

An umbrella:

Where were you?

Just across the street:

Have you decided

which kind you would like?

An umbrella:

A black umbrella:

Genevive, show the gentleman

the umbrellas:

Is that you, Guy?

Good evening, Aunt Elise:

Good evening, my boy:

How are your legs?

Fine, my boy:

What are you up to?

I'm hungry:

You'll spoil your appetite:

I do what I please:

Calm down and talk to me:

I haven't much time:

You seem very nervous:

I'm going out:


None of your business:

I think it is:

With a girl:

Do you love her?

It could be:

Tell me the truth:

Yes, I love her:

What's the matter?

You're crying!

No, I'm not:

I can see that you are:

Is it because you are lonely?

I am not lonely:

I have my books:

Madeleine will give me my shot:

She will keep me company:

What then?

Maybe happiness

makes me sad:

That's silly:

You big brute,

you're messing up my hair:

Good evening, Guy:

Good evening, Madeleine:

You are sad:

You seem happy:

Does it show?

I had a terrible time...


Persuading Mother:

It was getting late,

and the seamstress was late:



it is still full of pins:

You know,

I think

she suspects something:



When I said I was going

to the theater with Ccile,

she gave me

a funny look:

What kind of a look?

Like that:

She knows quite well

that Ccile hates shows,

and as I am a very bad liar...

That's what you say!

I assure you, I'm very awkward:

I stammered, I blushed...

I immediately

changed the subject:

Something squeezed:



The same:

Do you love me?

A mambo, let's go!

I should have changed shoes:

We will have children:

I will call my daughter


And if it's a boy?

It will be a girl:

We've always had girls

in the family:

One o'clock:

If Mother is not asleep,

what a scene there will be:

I should wear make-up,

don't you think?

You're lovely as you are:

A little bit here:



We will sell umbrellas:

No, not umbrellas:

We will sell the shop:

We will buy a gas station:

Why? What an idea!

All white, with an office,

you will see:

You'll smell of gas all day:

What happiness...

We will be very happy...

And we will stay in love...

You haven't told your mother?

Not yet:

Why? You're a coward:

You must not get mad:

I know what she will say:


"My little girl, you're crazy:

Thinking of marriage at your age!"

My little girl, you're crazy:

Thinking of marriage at 16!


In love!

Am I too ugly or too stupid?

No, you're not ugly:

You're not the fairest of them all,

but you're neither ugly nor dumb:

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…
