Claire Lescot is a famous first lady. All men want to be loved by her, and among them is the young scientist Einar Norsen. When she mocks at him, he leaves her house with the declared intention to kill himself.


Claire Lescot, haughty and mysterious opera singer, seems to despise humanity. A young admirer kills himself for her. She sings despite the tragedy, but cannot remain insensitive… An emblem of French cinema, L'INHUMAINE is a combination of the arts. Architectures by Robert Mallet-Stevens, set designs by Fernand Léger, Alberto Cavalcanti and Claude Autant-Lara, costumes by the great designer Paul Poiret… Marcel L’Herbier surrounded himself with prestigious avant-garde collaborators to direct a rare Art Deco film, a true symbol of French cinema.
