L’Atalante

Buy Tickets

The Complete Jean Vigo

Double Feature with ZÉRO DE CONDUITE

1934 • dir Jean Vigo w/Jean Dasté, Dita Parlo • 89 min • DCP

In Jean Vigo’s hands, an unassuming tale of conjugal love becomes an achingly romantic reverie of desire and hope. Jean (Dasté), a barge captain, marries Juliette (Parlo), an innocent country girl, and the two climb aboard Jean’s boat, the L’ATALANTE – otherwise populated by an earthy first mate (Simon) and a multitude of mangy cats – and embark on their new life together. Both a surprisingly erotic idyll and a clear-eyed meditation on love, L’ATALANTE, Vigo’s only feature-length work, is a film like no other.

Staff Pick: Brandon – I can’t wait to see this on the big screen!

“‘L’Atalante’ is about how the world, in its wonder and cruelty, is both for and against lovers, often dizzyingly so.” – Robert Abeles, Los Angeles Times
