Have you seen *The Umbrellas of Cherbourg*? If you haven't, you must, it's one of the most incredible movies ever, truly unique. It was the first thing I arrived at when I thought about what to use for the U this week. And it seems particularly fitting because the final scene takes place at Christmastime. But I'll give you a spoiler alert, it might not be a good idea to watch this if you haven't seen the movie before!
A couple of observations. I love that the lead guy has a handbag, that is so French. And the moment when Catherine Deneuve looks up and sees that it's him (at 2:25), it destroys me every time.
