An user says that the movie is inept.He is not completely wrong.But it's not Renoir's fault.You've got to know that one reel was definitively lost and that may account for some plot holes (Winna Winifried's behavior for instance) The plot is not essential .The atmosphere of a humid country where the fog falls every night matters more .There's also a study of xenophobia -although the ending (a bit incomprehensible anyway)- tends to deny it.
Harry Baur plays Maigret.They say Simenon did not like the film.If you like French movies based on the Belgian writer's books try Duvivier's "Panique" and Delannoy's "Maigret et l'Affaire Saint-Fiacre" and "Maigret Tend un Piège".
