The Blue Umbrella


I fell in love last week. We went to see Monsters University. As the lights dimmed I fell into a state of minor anxiety, the film showing wasn’t the one we’d paid to see, then I realised it was a pre-film short. A little Pixar animation about two umbrellas who meet on the rain soaked city streets during rush hour and fall in love. As the rain pours the city sings and the two are parted, will they ever meet again? Director of The Blue Umbrella, Saschka Unseld, calls it ‘a love declaration to the rain’. It’s wonderful. If you don’t have time to catch Monsters University it be available on the Monsters University DVD. I’m in deep, I’ve ordered the poster from the States.
