The film has marvellous atmosphere and a fine cast, but the material, which involves brutal, uncontrollable passion seen in a social framework, turns oppressive, and at times Gabin is a lump.

It is simply a story; a macabre, grim and oddly-fascinating story.

Superb performances from Gabin, Simon and Ledoux as the classic tragic love triangle.

Jean Renoir's generous sensibility seems at odds with the sterile determinism of the Zola novel on which this 1938 film was based.
