Rated NR · 100 minutes · 1931

Jean Renoir's first sound feature (1931) and one of his best, about a bored banker (Michel Simon) who becomes hopelessly smitten with a prostitute (Janie Mareze). This was later remade by Fritz Lang as Scarlet Street, a powerful film that nevertheless can't hold a candle to the original. Strongly recommended. In French with subtitles.
Director: Jean Renoir
