Film description

Singin' in the Rain

When the transition is being made from silent films to ‘talkies’, everyone has trouble adapting. Don (Gene Kelly) and Lina (Jean Hagen) have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practice with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy (Debbie Reynolds), a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.  

Packed full of marvelous songs and astounding dance routines, Singin’ in the Rain sees Gene Kelly and his ensemble perform to career highs in this joyous American classic about cinema itself.

Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Geneviève (Catherine Deneuve), a beautiful young Frenchwoman who works at a small-town boutique selling umbrellas, falls for dashing mechanic Guy (Nino Castelnuovo). Their brief romance is interrupted when Guy is drafted to serve in the Algerian War. Though pregnant by Guy, Geneviève marries an older businessman, Roland (Marc Michel), and begins to move on with her life.  

Stepping away from his forerunners and the realist style of the French New Wave, Jaques Demy wrote and directed a grand, but grounded musical - more influenced by Opera than Tinsel Town. With all dialogue spoken through song, this Palme d’Or winning film is a remarkable work of cinema, and with its focus on the drizzly, perfectly complementing one of Americas greatest musicals, Singin’ in the Rain.
