Movie Info

After her brother was killed by a notorious all-female pirate gang, Morag dedicates her life to bringing the murderers to justice. Soon, she has become an important member of the pirate gang and has begun acquiring the loyalty of key members. Eventually, she makes her move and challenges the leader, a demi-god (literally), known as "The Daughter of the Sun." The story of Noroit is based on an early 17th-century tragedy by Cyril Tourneur, and, though it is only the third one filmed, the movie is the concluding episode in a four-part series by director Jacques Rivette. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Northwest Wind (Noroit)


The most theatrical Rivette I've seen thus far (complete with Act # inter-titles!), and one of the most bizarre films I've seen. It's an anachronistic gynocentric pirate film that combines avant garde theater and Jacobean revenge play. It's shot in gorgeous eurotrash cinematography by William Lubchansky. The idea of having a live band perform the soundtrack in every scene is genius. Take note, Gore Verbinski. This is how you make a pirate film.
