Summary
  • Train engineer Jacques lusts after the wife of his co-worker Robaud. Robaud kills his boss and Jacques witnesses the murder. In order to keep Jacques quiet, Robaud allows Jacques to have an affair with his wife, creating a tragic love triangle
  • "... 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 noir, the film is a hard-boiled and suspensful journey into the tormented psyche of a workingman."--Container notes
