Garage mechanic Guy falls for Geneviève who works in her mother’s small umbrella shop. On the eve of Guy’s departure for a two-year tour of combat in Algeria, the two share a passionate night resulting in Geneviève’s pregnancy. She must now choose between waiting for Guy or accepting a proposal from another man.

“Described by Jacques Demy as 'a film in song', the visually intoxicating The Umbrellas of Cherbourg pays homage to the Hollywood musical... a major influence on directors including Damien Chazelle and Wes Anderson.”
