Allegedly, in the original plan, "Noroît" would have followed "Duelle" (1976) as the third episode of the intended four-film series Scènes de la vie parallèle (the first being a supernatural love story and the fourth a musical). This film does have some similar themes to "Duelle", most notably that it is classified as an "experimental fantasy".
Those looking for a straight-up revenge story with pirates may want to look elsewhere. This is a fine film, but the pirates seem more like an acting troupe without a theater than a serious gang of scalawags to be afraid of.
