This is a good copy of a great film. What a shame that this essential film is not available with a newer remastering though. And from my searches this is true for this film even in France. What is happening that many classics films are disappearing again? Are we headed back to the pre-Criterion days for home video? Or are we there already?

5.0 out of 5 stars An early sound masterpiece for Jean Renoir 24 July 2016
By Daryl Chin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Excellent Criterion package. LA CHIENNE is one of Renoir's masterpieces, a tale of obsession and lust told with touches of great humor. It also comes with ON PURGE BEBE, Renoir's first sound feature, a slightly stagey farce. LA CHIENNE has been restored with great care and is probably the best this film has looked in decades! Certainly a great showcase for Renoir's talent, showing remarkable fluidity in terms of camerawork and marvellous invention in the use of sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... the original of Scarlet Street which I had always liked better until I saw this new Criterion release 5 Aug. 2016

La Chienne is the original of Scarlet Street which I had always liked better until I saw this new Criterion release. I don't even miss Robinson, Bennett, and Duryea. This movie is that good!

4.0 out of 5 stars A master's early effort. 29 July 2016
By JC - Published on Amazon.com

I'm a fan of Renoir, the actor Michel Simon and 1930's French films so this was right up my alley. A nerdy older man with a shrewish wife falls for a prostitute who only has eyes for her pimp. It ends badly. Hollywood's remake with Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett called Scarlett Street does not end badly as was typical for Hollywood. This original version is a lot better. The bad get punished and the victim too but not in the Hollywood way.

4.0 out of 5 stars A DOUBLE GEM VIDEO 11 May 2002
By Marc-André Hallé - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This 1931 Renoir movie, made four years after the arrival of the first talking picture, is a very realistic analysis of some aspects of Montmartre way of living, with it's crude dialogue, lightened only by Renoir's naturalistic poetry. Michel Simon gives in this film (and in "L'Atalante") one of his top performances as the constantly humiliated husband who goes painting to support his mistress who exploits him.
"La Chienne" comes with the 1936 short "Une partie de campagne" , a masterpiece of French freshness which reminds us that Jean Renoir is also the son of the impressionist painter Auguste Renoir.
One complaint about this bonus film: dialogue is almost inaudible due to sound parasites.
