Liked La La Land? Then you'll love Damien Chazelle's key inspiration for the film, Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg!

Catherine Deneuve stuns in her first major role, a moving but bittersweet love story between Genevieve (Deneuve) and garage mechanic Guy (Nino Castelnuovo). In a bold experiment by Demy, every line of dialogue is sung, adding a beautiful fluidity across scenes that is enhanced by the film's rich visuals and vibrant color palette. The influence of Demy's masterpiece is far-reaching, with Damien Chazelle naming it as an inspiration for La La Land and his favorite film.
