The only feature-length film from Vigo. A young couple has difficulty navigating their recent marriage. Simon is the film's scene-stealer as the first mate of the "L'Atalante." Vigo ignores any plot to focus on the feelings and poetry of the lovers. The film is a reminder of what a talent Vigo was and how sad it is that he couldn't contribute more to film. I give it a 5/5.
Ooh LaLa the French have done it again. Marvelous especially Pere Jules' Cave of treasures.

Impressionistic and romantic
Vigo's beautiful and unsentimental dream of a romance is so impressionistic and gorgeous as so bring me to tears. It isn't just the beauty of the simplistic love story that wins me over. The cinematography is so carefully composed, it seems like every shot could be a photograph that I want to get inside. The actors are pitch perfect, in particular the lovely Dita Parlo. There is something so sincere, yet artful about this film, if you haven't seen it, try hard to find a copy of the Criterion Collection, fully restored version. It really is a "perfect" film.
