Audience Reviews for L'Atalante

    A lovely movie with a very likeable performance from Michel Simon. It's a shame Vigo died not too long after completing this film (he was only 29), he could have become one of the early masters of cinema history.

    A young barge skipper brings his new wife to live on board the ship L'atalante with him; confined to the boat, she grows bored, leading to domestic tragedy. Simple and charming, with comic relief and memorable, poetic shots; a minor classic, though fans of sentimental romances will consider it a must see title in the genre.

    A landmark French film and what is considered one of the greatest films of all time, L'Atalante is a masterpiece and shows the talent of Jean Vigo, as it is his crowning achievement. Jean Vigo died making this film due to his poor health and many believe, he in a sense died for cinema itself. What can be said with certainty though, is that the film is a visual masterpiece that is a love story, albeit darker than most in tone, but a poetic and wonderfully filmed piece of cinema that has inspired an untold numbers of Directors! Another essential film to view and as Jean Vigo's only full length feature, a piece of the man and his vision that can be cherished and appreciated decades after his death. This is most definitely a piece of cinema history and is wonderful!
