Directed by Jean Vigo; 1934, 89 mins.
River barge captain Jean Dasté marries country girl Dita Parlo and the two board Jean’s cat-populated boat, L’Atalante, along with first mate Michel Simon, to embark on a life of marital bliss…but surprises await the unsuspecting couple when they reach Paris. A clear-eyed meditation on love and a simple story – couple weds, couple has problems, couple reunites – is transformed by the director’s poetic touch into a work of art. “When Jean Vigo made L’ATALANTE, he achieved perfection. He made a masterpiece.” –François Truffaut
