Synopsis

BOUDU SAVED FROM DROWNING celebrates the battle of the human spirit against the stifling aspects of bourgeois civilisation. Parisian tramp Boudu, (Michel Simon), is rescued while attempting to jump from the Pont des Arts and adopted by a left-bank bookseller, M Lestingois. Groomed and healthy again, the shameless Boudu seduces both Lestingois' proud wife and his mistress, their maid...

There have been two remakes, DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS (starring Nick Nolte) and BOUDU (starring Gerard Depardieu).
