La Cage Aux Folles (1973) movie poster

6/28/19 – La Cage aux Folles (1978)

Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (Michel Serrault) are happy that their son, Laurent (Rémi Laurent), is getting married. Unfortunately, the bride’s father (Michel Galabru) is a die-hard conservative — and Renato and Albin are rather conspicuously gay. To ensure that the marriage goes off without a hitch, Albin uses his skills as a drag performer to play mom for a meeting with the in-laws. But before long, both men learn that playing it straight isn’t as easy as it seems!

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) movie poster

4/26/2019 – Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (1964)

This is the story of 16-year-old Genevieve and 20-year-old Guy who are very much in love. Her kind mother, who runs an umbrella shop, won’t hear of her marrying, particularly as Guy has yet to complete his compulsory military service. Genevieve is heartbroken when he leaves for his army service in colonial Algeria and is upset to have received only one letter from him in two months. She’s also pregnant. Her mother’s solution to this situation is diamond-merchant Roland Cassard, who has helped them in the past. He’s a kind man who agrees to raise Genevieve’s child as his own. By the time Guy returns from Algeria, Genevieve is married and the umbrella shop has been sold. Several years later, they meet again.
