L'Atalante (1931)

Nearly seventy-five years on and this remains one of the most charming little films you'll ever see. It's precious, but in a good way, like a Hummel figurine or a newborn kitten. Wish I had more to say about this film's potent mixture of romanticism, absurdism and the occasional dose of reality, but it's been a bit too long since I viewed it. All I can say is that it's a keeper.

Grade: A-
