Rainy day today
Today's weather gives me an excuse to post a few images from one of my favorite films, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Les Parapluies de Cherbourg in French).

It's the story of two young lovers who are torn apart when Guy (Castelnuovo's character) is drafted and sent to Algeria for two years. Amazing art direction with cool colors, regular talk set to 50s French music, and heartbreak... It's good.
I absolutely love how these colors look here:
