I apologize in advance for this post. Pass it by if you are at all squeamish. Georges Franju's 1949 film, Le Sang des bêtes, about slaughterhouses in France. I found it at Limited, Inc., where there is an ongoing discussion of the abbatoirs in France.

To be fair, these are quite beautifully shot. I'm wondering if the film wasn't more of an exploration of "authentic" folk life following the devastation of World War II.
