Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno Blu Ray|
In 1964, Henri-Georges Clouzot, the acclaimed director of thriller masterpieces Les Diaboliques and Wages of Fear, began work on his most ambitious film yet. Set in a beautiful lake side resort in the Auvergne region of France, L'Enfer (Inferno) was to be a sun scorched elucidation on the dark depths of jealousy starring Romy Schneider as the harassed wife of a controlling hotel manager (Serge Reggiani). However, despite huge expectations, major studio backing and an unlimited budget, after three weeks the production collapsed under the weight of arguments, technical complications and illness. In this compelling, award-winning documentary Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea present Inferno's incredible expressionistic original rushes, screen tests, and on-location footage, whilst also reconstructing Clouzot's original vision, and shedding light on the ill-fated endeavour through interviews, dramatisations of unfilmed scenes, and Clouzot's own notes.

Documentary in which film archivist Serge Bromberg tells the story of an unfinished film by French auteur Henri-Georges Clouzot: 'L'Enfer' starring Romy Schneider. Best known for 'Wages of Fear' (1953) and 'Les Diaboliques' (1955), Clouzot's ill-fated production was set to be an exploration of jealousy and madness - themes which sadly turned out to mirror Clouzot's own deteriorating state of mind as the production disintegrated around him.
