I loved this movie, but mainly from a visual standpoint. Actually, the story is cool too, but a little campy. Come to think of it, that's part of it's appeal...at any rate, I thought it was dope. It was as colorful as Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, but gritty. There was a hilarious bar brawl in this thing.
Rent this bitch.

Hey Al, I've been peaking in on you from time to time and I have to say, I love your illustrations. I realize now that I've seen some of your stuff on Threadless before. In fact I think my boyfriend wanted that turn table shirt. Anyway, just saying hello and that I will have to check out this movie because "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" was one of the prettiest films I have ever watched so I trust the comparison.

Thanks, Ellie! I really appreciate your comments.
Yeah, this is a very colorful film, so I thought of Cherbourg right away. I've never seen that film in its entirety, so I'm gonna have to rent that one myself.
