The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)

 Director: Jacques Demy, actors include: Catherine Deneuve ‘…..It is admired by gay men in France for its colour, music, its tale of forbidden love and the sailors who seem to be in every outdoor scene. It has been so appropriated to gay culture that now entire books are devoted to the queer sub-text of Demy’s films…..’ extract from ‘Pop Go the Sixties’ by Marshall Colman, 18.1.2017
