When Juliette marries and moves in with Seine barge captain, Jean, their relationship soon shows signs of strain. Sharing the cramped boat with eccentric bosun Père, a cabin boy and a clutter of cats doesn’t help; nor do Jean’s jealous tendencies or the couple’s reluctance to compromise. Vigo brings an extraordinary array of ideas and insights, with injections of surrealism to this simple story.
