Catherine / Une vie sans joie / Backbiters (1924) DVD9
In the provincial town of Varance, Catherine Ferrand, an orphan, is employed as housemaid to Georges Mallet, a prominent local councillor. Mallet’s wife, a sour vindictive woman, turns against Catherine and has her dismissed. Fortunately, Mallet finds a place for Catherine with his sister, Madame Laisne, who lives in Nice with her chronically ill and depressed son, Maurice. During the Nice carnival, Catherine dances with Maurice. Both appear to have found happiness – but then Maurice suddenly dies. To avoid a scandal, Catherine is dismissed again and she ends up in the clutches of an unscrupulous pimp, Adolphe. On her return to Varance, Catherine is unable to find work, thanks to the efforts of her mortal enemy Madame Mallet. Georges Mallet takes pity on Catherine and engages her to work as his secretary...
