A nice little old French film. Probably not for everybody. Some parts are more interesting than others, but ultimately both entertaining and heartfelt. About a newly wed couple where the groom is the captain of the cargo ship L’atalanta and his new bride lives on the ship with him. What seems like a perfect opportunity to mix both work with a magical honeymoon/married life on a boat provides for sufficient challenges to the newly weds and for an interesting film.
