Jean Grémillon in the Thirties
L'etrange Monsieur Victor
France | 1938 | Jean Grémillon
In this noirish psychological suspense drama, a mild-mannered French businessman (Raimu) decides to cut his ties to local mobsters and clean up his act when his wife (Madeleine Renaud) gives birth to their first child. But his good intentions go awry when he inadvertently kills a man, and an innocent person (Pierre Blanchar) is convicted of the crime, rendering the shopkeeper confused and guilt-ridden.
