Technicolor Dreaming: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Last weekend I finally watched the Umbrellas of Cherbourg, which is a French musical well opera is a better word.

I do not really remember where I first saw or hear about this movie but recently I watched an interview with Zooey Deschanel and she mentioned this movie as her style inspiration. After hearing that I had to move this movie up on my Netflix queue because I love Zooey and her unique fashion sense.

At first the movie comes to be a little shocking as every word is sung. At the beginning this takes a little getting used to but then you reach a point when it is just as if they were speaking.

The movie tells the story of a young love interrupted by war. The colors and costumes are a technicolor dream and the music is wonderful. I highly recommend this move it is something completely different and insanely beautiful.
