Trivia

After cutting over 15% of the film's length, Portuguese censors passed the film in 1955, but conservative critics attacked it even so, for lacking production values and showing too much. Manuel Pina wrote: "The word 'love' should not be used relating to this film. Love is not sensuality. In this film, 'to love' means something else, that morality prevents us to speak about."

After seeing it once, I've been searching for this movie for forty-some years, hoping to find out if it is as good as I remember.this movie once,
9 December 1999 | by (Flora, Mississippi) – See all my reviews

I saw "Les Amants du Tage" (though I could have sworn it was then "Port Something") sometime in the mid-1950s at one of the fleabag theatres on West 42nd Street in NYC. It was the lesser half of a double-bill with "The Light Across the Street," which introduced Brigitte Bardot (to me, at least) and which in my recollection was notable for nothing else.

In the mid-1950s I wasn't yet conditioned to accept as a hero a guy who in his opening scene blows two people away. By his closing scene, though, I was rooting for him and his girl and hoping they would somehow win out over the implacable force of destiny.

Very gripping little movie, deserving to be seen.
