The Human Beast/La Bête Humaine

by Jean Renoir
1938 - France - 96 min
July 11 | 7:00 p.m

As part of its Summer film series "Once Upon a Time: From Books to Movies," the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 1938 film The Human Beast by Jean Renoir.

Based on the classic Émile Zola novel, 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 film noir, the film is a hard-boiled and suspenseful journey into the tormented psyche of a workingman.
