Boudu sauvé des eaux by Jean Renoir( Visual )

125 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michel Simon gives one of the most memorable performances in screen history as Boudu, a Parisian tramp who takes a suicidal plunge into the Seine and is rescued by a well-to-do bookseller, Edouard Lestingois (Charles Granval). The Lestingois family decides to take in the irrepressible bum, and he shows his gratitude by shaking the household to its foundations. With Boudu Saved from Drowning (Boudu sauvé des eaux), legendary director Jean Renoir takes advantage of a host of Parisian locations and the anarchic charms of his lead actor to create an effervescent satire of the bourgeoisie."--Website
Les bas-fonds = The lower depths by Jean Renoir( Visual )

70 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: Jean Renoir and Akira Kurosawa, two of cinema's greatest directors, transform Maxim Gorky's classic proletariat play The Lower Depths in their own ways for their own times. Renoir, working amidst the rise of Hitler and the Popular front in France, had need to take license with the dark nature of Gorky's source material, softening its bleak outlook. Kurosawa, firmly situated in the postwar world, found little reason for hope. He remained faithful to the original with its focus on the conflict between illusion and reality-a theme he would return to over and over again. Working with their most celebrated actors (Gabin with Renoir; Mifune with Kurosawa), each film offers a unique look at cinematic adaptation-where social conditions and filmmaking styles converge to create unique masterpieces."--Website

Jean Gabin plays the wily impresario Danglard, who makes the cancan all the rage while juggling the love of two beautiful women-an Egyptian belly-dancer and a naive working girl turned cancan star. This celebration of life, art and the City of Light-with a cameo by Edith Piaf-is a Technicolor tour de force by a master of modern cinema."--Website
