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.
December 18, 2013
Renoir returns to the réelle du train with little comfort for his 'human beast.'

La bête humaine may show Renoir at his darkest, but as always Renoir in his observantly caustic mode can't bring himself to not splash highlighting colors onto his preeminently human canvas.

[Renoir's] expertise behind the camera--and his driving curiosity for human constructs and human nature...elevate La bete humaine to an unforgettable filmic experience.

The central performances in this tragic love triangle are brilliant and utterly convincing.

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

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.
August 30, 2006
Features one of Jean Gabin's greatest performances -- one with even more force than the locomotive he powers.
