Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1941, 85 mins. 35mm. With Jean Gabin, Michèle Morgan. André, a tugboat captain who specializes in bringing vessels in distress safely into port, goes out one storm-tossed night and fishes up Catherine, a young woman who drives a wedge between him and his sick wife. Remorques is perhaps the most powerful manifestation of Grémillon’s career-long fascination with the primal force of the sea.
