Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Fifty years ago today, the world fell in love with Catherine Deneuve and Nino Castelnuovo in "The Umbreallas Of Cherbourg." One of the best musicals of all time, and one of Jacques Demy's finest films, the sweeping tale packs romance, war, drama and music — oh, the music — into an unforgettable 90 minutes that are very much treasured by fans today.

So, to get you back into the mood, we've got some treats below, kicking off with a six-minute look at the film's restoration. It's a fascinating peek into the process to bring the vibrant film back to life — now available in a recently released Blu-ray anniversary edition abroad, though there doesn't seem to be a U.S. counterpart yet — with the legendary filmmaker and wife of Demy, Agnes Varda, among the participants. It's well worth a look. After that we have a handful of clips from the movie including the finale.

Check it all out below and be sure to catch up with movie in full if you haven't already.
