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.

Oceano nox
6 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

The making of "Remorques" began in 1939,as a follow-up to the excellent "l'étrange Monsieur Victor",and because of the Occupation,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 favorite 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 up 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.For man must work and woman must weep..

SPOILERS: The ending climaxes the movie.A distraught incredulous Gabin gazes at his dead wife whilst a lugubrious siren desperately wails there down by the ocean.Then the man,forgetting his plight,walks across the harbor to come to the rescue of the boat in distress:you can hear voices chanting prayers for the dead as he makes his way through darkness .This ending has the strength of an epic Victor Hugo poem.
