WAGES OF FEAR (Le salaire de la peur)

Synopsis: In a squalid South American village, four desperate men are hired by an American oil company to embark on a treacherous journey, transporting a volatile cargo of nitro-glycerine to a massive oil well fire. As they ferry their explosive cargo, 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, Henri-Georges Clouzot. Based on the 1950 French novel Le salaire de la peur and critically hailed upon its release, The Wages of Fear propelled its director Henri-Georges Clouzot to international fame, and is rightly considered a classic of world cinema.
