Funny, heart-rending, poetic and exhilaratingly inventive, Jean Vigo’s only full-length feature is widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made. When Juliette marries and moves in with barge captain Jean, their relationship soon shows signs of strain. To this simple love story, Vigo brings an extraordinary array of ideas and insights, while injections of surrealism locate the film in a fertile territory between realism and fantasy. A truly timeless masterpiece of French cinema.
