“…One of the supreme masterpieces of French cinema… The simple love-story plot involves the marriage of a provincial woman to the skipper of a barge…The sensuality of the characters and the settings, indelibly caught in Boris Kaufman’s glistening cinematography, are only part of the film’s remarkable poetry….The film is so fully alive to the world’s possibilities that magic and reality seem to function as opposite sides of the same coin, with neither fully adequate to Vigo’s vision…..A major inspiration to subsequent generations of filmmakers, yet no one has ever succeeded in matching it.” (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader)
