Renoir at his early best. Clochard, artist, con, middle age anrchist romantic and murderer point of view. The bitchy girl is as mean as victim of another guy that pays for the three of all.

Description: Jean Renoir's first sound film was a bitter and highly controversial psychological drama, so controversial that it was never shown in the United States until 1975, 44 years after its original French release. Maurice (Michel Simon) is a meek bank clerk trapped in a marriage with a harridan named Adele (Magdelaine Berubet). Maurice's sole pleasure in life is painting, a hobby he avidly pursues on weekends.

"15.9. Idiootti rakastuu itseään nuorempaan naiseen ja antaa maalaamansa taulut myyntiin tienaamatta itse penniäkään. Mukaan saadaan ranskalaista runoutta, rappioromantiikkaa, vaarallinen nainen ja surullinen taiteilijasielu. Tällainen elokuva ei oikein enää säväytä. Perusasiat ovat noin muuten kunnossa, mutta leikkaus töksähtelee esimerkiksi oikeussalikohtausten välissä panssarivaunutusauksella ruudulle pamautettavan kellon muodossa.

"Jostain syystä polemiikkia aikoinaan aiheuttanut Renoir on piristävän kyyninen kuvaus hyväuskoisista ja paskoista ihmisistä. Lang taisi myöhemmin tehdää tästä oman versionsa Eddie G kanssa."
