Based on the classic Emile Zola novel, Jean Renoir's La bête humaine was one of the legendary director's greatest popular successes-and earned star Jean Gabin a permanent place in the hearts of his countrymen. Part poetic realism, part film noir, the film is a hard-boiled and suspenseful journey into the tormented psyche of a workingman.
