Product Description

Juliette e Jean sono due novelli sposi, a bordo dell'Atalante, nave chiatta lungo la rete fluviale francese, governata di fatto dal marinaio père Jules e dal giovane mozzo. La routine e la noia per la vita in una chiatta subentrano presto alla gioia del matrimonio, e Juliette non sa resistere all'attrazione per Parigi. Dopo un litigio sbarca e si perde per la grande e luminosa città. Jean, inizialmente in collera, cade in depressione e trascura il lavoro. Père Jules parte per ritrovare Juliette...

Format: DVD
"L'Atalante," (1930), a romantic drama, is one of the lesser known glories of early French cinema, which is a shame, as it is a masterpiece. It is in black and white, runs a tight 89 minutes, and is the great achievement of Jean Vigo, a too-little known but greatly respected and influential film maker who died of tuberculosis, shortly after its completion, at the shockingly young age of 29. The film is now generally available only on a disk of Vigo's collected works, along with his "A propos de Nice," "Taris" and "Zero de conduite" that constitute the entire oeuvre of the director's short, turbulent life.

"L'Atalante" opens as Juliette, a young village girl who has never set foot outside her village, marries Jean, mate on a French river barge named "L'Atalante," and sets up housekeeping aboard. Also aboard are a cabin boy, and the colorful old sailor Pere Jules, played by the inimitable Michel Simon (Criterion Collection: Port of Shadows [DVD] [1938] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]). When the barge reaches Paris, Juliette, who has never seen that great city, slips off to take a look at it. Jean awakes, discovers her gone, and leaves her to her own devices in the French capital. She knows no one there, has no money, does not know the city at all, and will have a very hard time there. But so will Jean, on his own again, until Pere Jules goes to find her.

But this simple, engaging plot isn't the reason the film is so loved. It was restored in 2001, making Boris Kaufman's brilliant cinematography and Maurice Jaubert's lovely score accessible again.

This is a simple love story of two newly-weds living on the barge "L'Atlante". Soon they realise that life is not the dream they had first imagined, but thanks to the intervention of the First Mate Pere Jules, everything works out well in the end.
Nothing much happens in this film. But nothing much happens very beautifully. It's a charming film, both dramatic and melodramatic, and a wonderful example of the adage "Love Conquers All". See it, be uplifted, be charmed.

The classic old French movie "L'Atalante" arrived promptly, but badly dubbed into Italian.....I'd have understood more of the original French soundtrack, since the only Italian words I know are "Berlasconi" and another rude epithet that generally goes with it. Also, the picture quality is rank bad. It's going straight in the bin, after viewing four minutes. AMAZON please note!!!
Bass-chap.
