Trivia

The rights for the novel by Roger Vercel had been acquired by the German film company Universum Film A.G. (better known as 'UFA') in 1935. Raoul Ploquin, head of the French branch of UFA, first asked writer Charles Spaak to write a scenario based on Vercel's novel. Dissatisfied with the result, André Cayatte was asked to take over but the project was quickly shelved. UFA subsequently sold the rights to Joseph Lucachevitch, director of the company 'Societé d'Exploitation et de Distribution de Films' (known as SEDIF), based in France, who invited Jacques Prévert to re-write the scenario and dialogue.

Good, but flawed
19 November 2012 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Jean Gabin stars as the captain of a tugboat. On a job, he rescues Michele Morgan. Later, they begin a romance, though Gabin is married to the lovable but perpetually worried Madeleine Renaud. This is a pretty good film, though it has some major flaws. The scenes in the stormy seas (which is what the title literally means) look particularly great for the time. The major flaw, as I see it, is that the relationship between Morgan and Gabin just happens too quickly, and is thus not that believable. In the scenes between Gabin and Renaud, their relationship seems so wonderful and loving that it's hard to believe he'd dump her so quickly - like later the same day, pretty much. The film's finale is quite powerful. The performances throughout are excellent, especially Gabin's. Jacques Prevert co-wrote the script.
