LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Classic story, but, told (sung) framed, shot and art directed so beautifully!

Beautiful, melodramatic, and romantic with some fun transitions thrown in. All you need for a great movie.

Saw the movie years ago when I was very young and it made me cry. A real soap of a story and poor acting, but I love the vivid colors and the music by Michel Legrand wins you over. Without that emotional music, the film would probably never have won the Golden Palm in Cannes.

I don't know why I always put this movie off; have even seen Lola, Jacques' "prequel" to Umbrellas. Very very glad I finally gave it a watch. Beautiful and vivid, both visually and emotionally.

I saw this movie in the theater in the 70's. Beautiful then, & beautiful now. Music just takes you away. If you love pastel colors-------------

Absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful colors, cinematography, and music. Clearly a huge influence on modern musicals especially La La Land, so if you were a fan of that film, this is definitely one to check out.

If it's a CLASSIC. Then the chances are I at least know about it. I've known about this film fyor MANY years. Oddly enough, I've never seen it. BUT if you go to Youtube you can find online right there, the trailer. Eyes to god, I've seen the trailer upwards of twenty times

The Bakery Girl of Monceau
Simple, delicate, and jazzy, the first of the "Moral Tales" shows the stirrings of what would become the Eric Rohmer style: unfussy naturalistic shooting, ironic first-person voice-over, and the image of the "unknowable" woman.

Jacques Demy's crystalline debut gave birth to the fictional universe in which so many of his characters would live, play, and love.
