Pleasant surprise - The Umbrellas of Cherbourg review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
07/02/2011

Five minutes in to this film I was thinking to myself "why did I order this again?" but I was soon captivated and when the titles appeared wished I could have watched it again. It is famous for the photography but there are some very recognisable songs beautifully sung, fine acting performances and a classic storyline, enjoy.
