Directed by: JEAN VIGO
1934, TSPDT Rank #16

A great early French romantic film, practically bursting with poetic images. I think this film is known as one of the best of all time because of the way it approaches such a simple story and turns it into a light yet very meaningful classic with universal appeal that will always impress with its amazing visuals and basic human emotions. It would take less than 3 hours to watch the four movies Jean Vigo made in his short life, before dying of tuberculosis, but it goes to show his greatness that he can make a story of love, heartbreak, and redemption between two people and have it endure this long. It's worth seeing for sure.

(Rating: 9/10)
