Library Journal Review

Six films representing the delightfully diverse oeuvre of French New Wave filmmaker Demy (1931-90) Lola, Bay of Angels, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, The Young Girls of Rochefort, Donkey Skin, and Une chambre en ville offer signature takes on genres ranging from melodrama to musical. Digitally restored and chock-full of extras, the collection boasts the breakout performance by Catherine Deneuve in the deliriously romantic Cherbourg and the star-making role for Anouk Aimee in Lola.
