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!
