Movie Info

Emile Zola's landmark novel about family greed, brutality and deceit is transferred powerfully to the silent screen. Pere Fouan divides his land equitably between his two conniving sons, but his generosity is rewarded with treachery. The sons hatch an insidious plot against their father, and when neighbor Françoise (Germaine Rouer) uncovers their plans, she, too, falls victim to their revenge.
