Amidst the film’s unyielding craft, Deneuve’s red eyes are like a violent crack in a heavily controlled façade… it’s as if the film’s thick, exquisitely colored curtains were suddenly pulled apart just enough for a timid slit of sunlight to come through and dramatically change every tone, every shade.

This and THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT are noted for their use of color, but the schemes are distinct. In the latter, sunny pastels and bright whites obscure any hint of grimy realism. In THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, which is more operatic in tone and structure, Demy utilizes bolder, more primary colors. This further allows for hints at the film’s fateful bitterness. All that glitters is gold in Demy’s world, but his is a gold that illuminates the screen while revealing its own artifice.

Could this be the saddest musical of all time? One of the greatest films ever made in any genre, Jacques Demy’s masterpiece tells of a great love that turns out not be a great love at all… Michel Legrand’s occasionally lilting, occasionally thundering music works in tandem with Demy’s alternately intimate, alternately sweeping cinematic style to create a film that is often elusive and unexpectedly complex — and never not breathtaking.
