French Film Festival: The Wages of Fear (Le salaire de la peur)

Fri, Mar 24 / 7 pm
Directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot
1953, France, 141 min
French with English subtitles

In a squalid South American oil town, four desperate men sign on for a suicide mission to drive trucks loaded with nitroglycerin over a treacherous mountain route. As they ferry their explosive cargo to a faraway oil fire, each bump and jolt tests their courage, their friendship, and their nerves. The result is one of the greatest thrillers ever committed to celluloid, a white-knuckle ride from France’s legendary master of suspense.

Reviews

The kind of motion picture for which phrases like "white-knuckle tension ride" have been coined....a visceral thriller..breathless excitement.
