Genevieve and her mother work in a umbrellas shop. Genevieve is deeply in love with Guy, a mechanic who soon has to leave to fight in war, so Genevieve must marry a rich jeweller instead. In this classic musical, French director Jacques Demy elevates the basic drama of everyday life into a soaring opera full of bittersweet passion and playful charm, featuring a timeless performance from Catherine Deneuve.
