Watch my short Central & Broadway: youtu.be/THir5ofZRUA
A musical about a forbidden (or rather ill-advised) love set during a labor strike is maybe not everyone’s cup of tea but this is Demy and he gives it a fighting shot. Is it as bright and sunny as Umbrellas or Young Girls? Nope. But as with most of Demy’s other films there is a melancholy at its core. A knowing feeling that things can’t work try as one might. Very French. And delightfully Eighties.
