Human Desire is Fritz Lang’s American take on Émile Zola’s 1890 novel La Bête humaine. Deceit, lies and violence dominate the story in which Korean War veteran Jeff Waren returns to his job as a railroad engineer. He quickly succumbs to his boss’s wife, Vicki Buckley, with whom he starts an affair. Thus begins a tangled web of suspicion, sex and murder, involving Vicki and her brutish husband Carl.
USA, 1954, 90mins, English, directed by Fritz Lang
