REVIEW FOR FRENCH FILM SCREENING
What can offer a better account of the atrocities committed by the Germans during their occupation of France than a movie set during that period and shot by an French who has seen it all? Alliance Françoise de Hyderabad, as a part of the French film festival, is screening Remorques (Stormy Nights) at Sarathi Studios at 18:30.

Directed by Jean Grémillon, Remorques's making began in 1939,as a follow-up to the excellent "l'étrange Monsieur Victor", and because of the German occupation of France, it was released two years later. That also explains the length of the movie (hardly 80 minutes in the broadcast versions).

It's a simple story: the plot involves a tough sailor, Gabin, torn between two women, the frail Madeleine Renaud, Gremillon's favourite actress (she was featured in all of his four movies of the 1938-1943 period), and the disillusioned Michèle Morgan (with whom he had teamed in Carné's famous "quai des brumes").

The banal plot matters much less than the atmosphere; the star of the movie is the Ocean. You can hear, feel or see it ceaselessly along the viewing. This ocean, which nobody can tame, which breaks willpower and which makes every man work very hard and every woman weep.
