Mike and I had restful naps late this afternoon. When we awoke, Turner Classic Movies was about to start broadcasting Jacques Demy's classic musical "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg."

The guest programmer was "La La Land" director Damien Chazelle who shared his love of the French film with TCM host Ben Mankiewicz and us, the viewing audience at home.

This was Mike's first time seeing "Umbrellas" and I'm pleased to report he enjoyed it. The only time I saw the film was back in the day at legendary Thalia Theatre on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Nice way to see it a second time. We love movie musicals!
