Synopsis

Provincial drama from legendary director Jean Renoir, based on a true story and widely seen as being the first 'neorealist' feature. Filmed on location in the small village of Les Martigues, it follows Italian immigrant Antonio 'Toni' Canova (Charles Blavette) as he becomes entangled in a relationship with his landlady, and with tempestuous Spanish girl Josefa (Celia Montalvan). When Josefa is brutally raped and forced into a marriage with the bullying Albert (Max Dalban), the foreman of the quarry where Toni works, Toni sees his life begin to degenerate into apathy and emotional fragility. Only a shocking act of violence can lift these damaged people out of their malaise.
