Overview

Director Jean Vigo (1905-34) stands high on the lists of cinema's most formidable artists and its most unspeakably tragic figures. Formidable in the sense that Vigo, in a mere 29 years, turned out a handful of some of the most beautiful films the world has ever seen, with a wholly distinct and refreshing voice - titles such as Taris, L'Atalante, Zéro de Conduite and À Propos de Nice. Tragic in the sense that this brilliant artist died at the age of 29, not from a vice of any kind but from a bout of tuberculosis that silenced his voice forever. The venerable Criterion Collection issued this comprehensive box set of all four of the said titles by Vigo - fully restored with numerous supplements.
