Storyline

Almost 19-year-old Marius feels himself in a rut in Marseille, his life planned for him by his cafe'-owning father, and he longs for the sea. The night before he is to leave on a 5-year voyage, Fanny, a girl he grew up with, reveals that she is in love with him, and he discovers that he is in love with her. He must choose between an exciting life at sea, and a boring life with the woman he loves. And Fanny must choose between keeping the man she loves, and letting him live the life he seems to want. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

The Best!!
20 October 2000 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I saw this movies in 1961. I've never before or since been touched so deeply by a movie. Simply stated it's my ALL TIME favorite movie... The cast was superb especially Leslie Caron. I thought she should have won an Oscar. The music is still my favorite sound track. The cinematography was gorgeous beyond words. I could go on and on, but who couldn't when talking about their favorite movie of All TIME.
