The Wages of Fear

“The excitement derives entirely from the awareness of nitroglycerine and the gingerly, breathless handling of it. You sit there waiting for the theatre to explode.” (Bosley Crowther, New York Times)


Four desperate outcasts in a nowhere South American town take on a suicide mission: transporting a load of volatile nitroglycerin over rough roads and craggy mountains and into the jungle to a break in an oil pipe- line. Starring Yves Montand, this is Henri-Georges Clouzot’s crowning achievement, which is saying something for a filmmaker who made only masterpieces.
