Jean Gabin was France's greatest film star when this film was made. According to Renoir, Gabin's interest in locomotives and his desire to play a train conductor, was one of the primary reasons that this film was made. Once Gabin had agreed to star in the film, Renoir wrote the script in two weeks, utilizing about half the scenes in Emile Zola's novel. Gabin portrays the misogynistic Lantier, a conductor working on the Paris-Le Havre line and a man who is constantly off balance, a product of family violence and alchoholism. While walking beside the railroad line, Lantier witnesses a stabbing on board a passing train. Weeks later, as he pursues an affair with Séverine, the wife of his co-worker Roubaud, Séverine reveals that she was present during the murder aboard the train and that her husband was the assailant. Already obsessed with Séverine, Lantier makes a vow that he won't turn her in to the police. It is not long before Lantier and Severine begin to plan the murder of her husband

Dr Etienne Alexis (Paul Meurisse) is a scientist involved in a radical program pioneering the use of artificial insemination. Coming from a coldly formal intellectual upbringing, Alexis' invention aims to remove passion from reproduction as he perceives it to be unnecessary complication; and in doing so he will bring further wealth to his family via their chemical-making corporations. To celebrate both the invention and his engagement to a German cousin, Alexis and some friends hold a picnic where the unexpected interruption by a windstorm coupled with the appearance of young and beautiful servant Nenette (Catherine Rouvel) serve to radically re-educate Alexis' beliefs about the nature of love and class
