Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno (L'enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot)
- 100 min
- Directed by: Serge Bromberg/Ruxandra Medrea
- Cast: Romy Schneider, Serge Reggiani, Jacques Gamblin
The fascinating tale of an unfinished masterpiece, reassembled from surviving footage and interviews with original crewmembers. Crazed filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot (the French Hitchcock in the eyes of many) never completed 'Inferno', a romantic thriller of obsessive jealousy that combined traditional filmmaking with radical new ideas from the art world - a great loss for cinema, if this is anything to go by.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
