The Lower Depths (1936) Jean Renoir, Jean Gabin, Suzy Prim, Louis Jouvet


Voted 1936’s best picture by a circle of prestigious French critics, Jean Renoir’s The Lower Depths (Les Bas-Fonds) is based on the “gutter” play by Russian author Maxim Gorky. Louis Jouvet plays The Baron, forced by circumstance to give up his life of luxury and to set up residence in the slums of Paris. As Jouvet observes the passing parade, he bears witness to the frustrated romance between Jean Gabin and Junie Astor, the thwarted dreams of actor Robert Le Vigan, and the oppressive cruelties of landlord Vladimir Sokoloff. The Lower Depths surprised Renoir’s admirers, who weren’t used to seeing the director involve himself in so sordid and depressing a tale. Actually, the project was brought to Renoir by a producer friend of his, who secured the director’s services by promising to provide Louis Jouvet and Jean Gabin as the leading actors.
