First part: The dialogue is effective, if not powerful, the sets show an
exceptional attention to detail, the images possess a great beauty, the
actors are talented. A work of really great quality.
Second part: This part offers an accurate portrait of the psychology of
fishermen and clearly shows the antagonism which drives the two brothers
Third part: Astonishingly, this part, much more sombre than the previous
parts, is less convincing. The avalanche of bad luck which tumbles onto the
Levasseur family weighs down the intrigue. This is a shame, because the
actors' performances remains one of a rare quality.
Fourth part: This epilogue sometimes appears theatrical but maintains the
(remarkable) quality of the acting, direction and cinematography which make
this a choice piece of television.
