    Brutal and brilliant. Gorgeous and squalid. The fact that Olga Miranova became a schoolteacher after this and never made another film blows my mind. She was a true talent. In my selfishness, I wish that she’d shared more of that talent on screen.

    ★★★

    I didn’t find this compelling, which was disappointing. There were some beautiful moments, but overall this is certainly my least favorite Truffaut. The character who lit up the screen was Therese, played by Marie Dubois.

    I let my 10-year-old stay up late with me last night and watch this movie. She'd never seen a Wes Anderson film before. I can't explain what a treat it was to watch her giggle with joy and delight throughout. Being a parent is incredibly frustrating and a pain in the ass a lot of the time, but there are few greater experiences in life than the vicarious pleasure you get when introducing something wonderful to your kid.

    This was the first really great pirate movie since the original Treasure Island. Unfortunately, it was the last one, too.
