The Umbrellas of Cherbourg: 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray

Posted November 8, 2013 05:23 PM by Webmaster

Studio CanalStudioCanal has revealed that it plans to bring to Blu-ray acclaimed director Jacques Demy's romantic musical Les Parapluies de Cherbourg a.k.a The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964), starring Catherine Deneuve, Nino Castelnuovo, Marc Michel, and Anne Vernon. The release will be available for purchase in the United Kingdom on February 10th.

A story of lost love, with all the dialogue sung rather than spoken. In the French seaside town of Cherbourg, Genevieve (Catherine Deneuve, in her first screen role) discovers that she is pregnant by her boyfriend, Guy (Nino Castelnuovo). When Guy is drafted into the army, Genevieve marries diamond merchant Roland Cassard (Marc Michel), even though she still loves Guy. She is destined for one last encounter with her true love, in a frosty Esso gas station.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg was recently restored by Ciné Tamaris. Below is a video highlighting the many improvements that were made during the restoration with comments by renowned director Agnes Varda, Rosalie Varda-Demy, Thierry Delannoy from Digimage, and director Mathieu Demy.

I really hope for a Criterion blu-ray.... but being a Studio Canal release, I would think that would mean a Lionsgate region 1 release. I hope not, but...
