In Jean Vigo’s hands, an unassuming tale of conjugal love becomes an achingly romantic reverie of desire and hope. Jean, a barge captain, marries Juliette, an innocent country girl, and the two climb aboard Jean’s boat, the L’Atalante—otherwise populated by an earthy first mate and a multitude of mangy cats—and embark on their new life together. 

DVD-R is in French with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 86 min.  See film sample for audio and video quality!
