Gerard Dépardieu starred as Maheu in a 1993 movie of Germinal
Clip One shows Étienne Lantier's arrival at the mine in search of work
(24 minutes)
Clip Two shows Maheu helping Étienne rent a room a L'Avantage (2 minutes)
Clip Three shows Rasseneur, Étienne, and Souvarine discussing the economic situation (2 minutes)
Clip Four shows the new pay scale and the slashing of Bonnemort's pension (2:39 min)
Clip Five shows the Hennebeau luncheon celebrating the engagement of Cécile and Négrel and Maheu's plea (9 min)
This clip is important because it explains the clash between the view of management v. the view of labor
