February 15, 2014

France | 1953 | 131 minutes | Henri-Georges Clouzot

Four men, trapped in a pestilent South American village, agree to transport a dangerous shipment of nitroglycerine through treacherous terrain.

This existentialist action movie is arguably the most suspenseful film ever made. Yves Montand and Charles Vanel star, and earn every cent.
