- Complete Jean Vigo
- 'Even among cinema's greatest legends, Jean Vigo stands alone. The son of a notorious anarchist, Vigo had a brief but brilliant career making poetic, lightly surrealist films before his life was cut tragically short by tuberculosis at age twenty-nine. Like the daring early works of his contemporaries Jean Cocteau and Luis Buñuel, Vigo's films refused to play by the rules. This set includes all of Vigo's titles' -- Container. À propos de Nice: What starts off as a conventional travelogue turnes into a satirical portrait of the town of Nice on the French Côte d'azur, and its wealthy inhabitants. Taris: A short documentary about the swimmer Jean Taris, notable for Vigo's innovative techniques Zéro de conduite: In a repressive boarding school with rigid schools of behavior, four boys decide to rebel against the administration on a celebration day. L'Atalante: When Juliette marries Jean, she comes to live on his ship, on board of which are, besides the two of them, only a cabin boy and the strange old second mate Père Jules.
