"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]  [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.Read more ›
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.
