Quite Continental Recommends: BAMcinématek Deneuve
15/03/2011 § Leave a comment
Currently, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is showing a 25-film tribute to the amazing Catherine Deneuve. Running through March 31, the festival includes films such as Belle du Jour, Manon 70, and Repulsion, among others. Last week I had the good fortune to catch Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. If you’ve already seen the film, you’ll remember it as the rather odd, completely sung, vibrantly colorful film that features a 20 year-old Catherine Deneuve in a story about young lovers in the small port town of Cherbourg. And if you haven’t seen it, how could you refuse it after that description?
Playing to a packed house on a stormy night, a story about an umbrella shop seemed quite apropos. The bright colors were a dream! I immediately had a desire to wear pink with orange, and found myself thinking about the color blocking, stripes and use of contrast of Prada S/S 2011. See what I mean? J’adore!
More from Les Parapluies…
