Time Out says

The location of Renoir's adaptation of Maxim Gorki's play is not identified, but from the distinctive acting styles the feel is very French, with the enclosed world of a studio-built courtyard suggesting the dark side to his earlier success, Le Crime de Monsieur Lange. But rather than building on a feeling of community, the characters assembled - among them an actor, a drunk, a fallen baron - exist more as individuals looking for a way to escape. Gabin and Jouvet are their usual glorious selves, though the tendency towards pessimism makes this one of Renoir's less rewarding films.
