So obviously, I'm the only person who cares about Martin Roumagnac, but that's ok, I'm used to that LOL. Anyway, I watched it finally with subtitles, which was a relief, because my French has deteriorated BADLY since college and it was actually a pretty decent film noir(ish). Dietrich plays Blanche, a beautiful woman from Paris who runs a bird shop (what? really?) as a front for her call girl business upstairs.  Jean Gabin is Martin, the rather naive builder who falls for her. Blanche is also the mistress of the local bigwig (who has an invalid wife) and decides to fool around with Martin while waiting for the wife to die. Deitrich does exactly what a femme fatale is supposed to do--leads him down the primrose path, then destroys him. They are both very good in their roles--she gives the woman just enough softness that you believe that maybe she does really love him (but she loves money and power more) and Gabin is Gabin and very good at it.
