L’Atalante is one of the foundation stones of French cinema, regularly cited among the top ten films ever made and a source of inspiration for directors ranging from François Truffaut to Leos Carax. Unlike most love stories, Jean Vigo’s only feature-length film begins with a wedding rather than concludes with one, as small-town girl Juliette marries skipper Jean and embarks on the river barge “L’Atalante” with her new husband, his first mate Père Jules, a cabin boy, and a host of unruly cats.
