Vigo's feature is outwardly a simple story: couple weds, couple has problems, couple reunites, but it's transformed by the director's poetic, idiosyncratic touch into a masterpiece. Cinematographer Boris Kaufman (the younger brother of Dziga Vertov) recalled, "He used everything around him: the sun, the moon, snow, night. Instead of fighting unfavorable conditions, he made them play a part." Already in delicate health (at times he had to direct from a stretcher), the winter location shooting may have pushed Vigo over the edge – he died of lung disease at age 29, three weeks after the Paris premiere.
