"Set in the French Port city of Cherbourg, the movie deals with tragic love but avoids sentimentality and professes a great awareness of its characters and life.   It contains an ending that could never be made in a Hollywood musical and boasts exquisite acting from all of its cast.  None of the cast sing their own tunes and have their dialogue dubbed and it is a testament to their performances that I never for a moment thought the voice and body where not the same." - Chanan Stern (1001 movies)
