La Bete Humaine
- 1h 39min
- Directed by: Jean Renoir
- Cast: Jean Gabin, Simone Simon, Julien Carette, Fernand Ledoux.
A classic example of pre-war French poetic realism, Renoir's updating of Zola's novel captures all of its naturalistic spirit. Jacques Lantier (Gabin) is a train driver who falls in love with the beautiful wife of his stationmaster, who has already killed her former lover. A wonderful melodrama, shot against the smoke and steam of the Paris-Le Havre railway.
