Movie Still Monday: L’Atalante

This week’s stills come from the 1934 Jean Vigo film L’Atalante, starring the loverly Dita Parlo.

New bride Juliette is knitting onboard her hubby’s canal barge. A sweater, peut-être?

And of course, don’t forget to take proper measurements.

Later, Juliette sports a très belle crocheted shawl as she sits morosely meditating in the fog.

But why so glum, Tristesse?

It could be that whole “newly married and living on a canal barge filled with cats” thing.

Or maybe the sweater didn’t fit.
