Slant Magazine opens a 4 out of 4 star review with this: "Deceptively simple in form and, despite its swooning sentiment, knowing about the fluid complications of amour, Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg retains its direct appeal to the eyes, ears, and tear ducts after nearly 50 years, with an emotionalism that's shameless but never crass."
Roger Ebert says, "When she made "Umbrellas" for the French director Jacques Demy, Deneuve was 20, and her work in this film was a flowering that introduced one of the great stars of modern French cinema" and concludes, "it is remembered as a bold original experiment, and now that it is restored and back in circulation, it can also be remembered as a surprisingly effective film, touching and knowing and, like Deneuve, ageless."
It's included in the book 1,001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 98%.
