Audience Reviews for L'Atalante

½

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.

I barely remember this movie, I didn't see the whole thing, I'll have to watch it again sometime.

a sensuous, poetic love story with exceptional cinematograpy and use of music. shot on location soon after the sound era began, seemingly years ahead of it's time, it became a big influence on the french new wave, especially truffaut. dita parlo is very sweet as the tempted wife and i especially loved michel simon as drunken père jules with his cats. this was jean vigo's fourth and last film; he died shortly after it's release at age 29, a great loss to the film world
