LES PARAPLUIES DE CHERBOURG (U) MALVERN FRENCH FILM CENTRE
21st November 2021 3:00 pm
Director: Jaques Demy
This is the story of 16-year-old Geneviève and 20-year-old Guy who are very much in love. Her kind mother won’t hear of her marrying, particularly as Guy has yet to complete his military service. Geneviève is heartbroken when he leaves for army service in colonial Algeria and is upset to have only received one letter from him in two months. She is also pregnant. Her mother’s solution to this situation is kindly diamond-merchant Roland Cassard. He agrees to raise Geneviève’s child as his own, and when Guy returns from Algeria he finds Geneviève now married.
