(Jean Vigo) Incorrigible kids return to the world’s crummiest boarding school and then things rapidly get surreal. Based on soon-to-die-young Vigo’s own bitter experiences. Plus avantgarde, gay-themed Lot in Sodom. Approx. 75 min. 35mm.
“Jean Vigo’s 44-minute comedy-fantasy about a schoolchildren’s revolt is one of the most poetic films ever made and one of the most influential.”
– Pauline Kael
“One of the most visually eloquent and adventurous movies I have seen… The spirit of this film, its fierceness and gaiety, the total absence of well-constructed ‘constructive’ diagnosis and prescription, the enormous liberating force of its quasi-nihilism, its humor, directness, kindliness, criminality, and guile, form for me as satisfying a revolutionary expression as I know.”
– James Agee
