L'HOMME DU LARGE (Man of the Sea) (1920):
Nolff, a devout Breton fisherman, has taken a vow of silence and lives as a hermit beside the sea. No one comes near him, except a white-clad novice who brings him food. Years before: Full of contempt for mankind and life on land, Nolff built his house on a remote cliff, and devoted himself to his fishing and to his wife and children: his daughter Djenna, hard-working and dutiful; and his son Michel, whom he idolizes and is determined to bring up as "a free man, a sailor". But Michel is selfish and exploits his father's blind affection. The boy ends up hating the sea; he becomes addicted to the pleasures of the town, and lured into bad behavior by his friend Guenn-la-Taupe.
