How as anxious to see this movie after Scarlet Street to compare both, firstly Jean Renoir wasn't satisfied with Fritz Lang remaking your movie. La Chienne is more a natural story,the characters aren't artificial,they are tough as life itself....it's a dramatic comedy in general way but have some differences like Lulu portrait a real prostitute...Dedé is a serious Pimp.. and Legrand is desperately falling in love for Lulu and trying keeping to her...won't a noir film but have several motives to be...ambitious movie much ahead of this time a true Jean Renoir's masterpiece to see and delighted!!!!
