In 1964 Director Henri-Georges Clouzot (The Wages of Fear, Les Diaboliques) started to make a film called L’enfer. He never finished it; it nearly finished him. In 1992, Clouzot’s widow sold the script to Claude Chabrol who did then make the film, releasing it in 1994. In 2005, Clouzot’s widow made available the film that her husband had shot and this was reconstructed to make the movie-cum-documentary Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Enfer, completed in 2009. You have the opportunity to see both and can compare and contrast the two versions. Is Clouzot’s work a lost masterpiece or did Chabrol do the script justice? You decide…
