HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT’S INFERNO
2009, Flicker Alley, 94 min, France, Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzot, Serge Bromberg, Ruxandra Medrea

Among the most legendary unfinished films in world cinema, INFERNO was extinguished after three weeks of shooting in 1964, leaving behind 15 hours of stunning imagery unseen until now. Noted preservationist Serge Bromberg and co-director Ruxandra Medrea have reconstructed Henri-Georges Clouzot’s tale of all-consuming jealousy starring Romy Schneider and Serge Reggiani, bridging gaps with interviews, storyboards and re-enactments. The resulting hybrid of documentary and narrative film is a hypnotic look at the intersection of madness and creativity. In French with English subtitles.

THE TRUTH
LA VERITÉ
1960, Sony Repertory, 130 min, France/Italy, Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzot

Brigitte Bardot tops her amazing work with Godard and Vadim in this scorching portrait of amour fou. She stars as Dominique, a hedonistic free spirit on trial for the murder of her lover, musician Sami Frey. Clouzot breaks ground in his fearless look at private insecurities, revealing what supposedly constitutes a “sordid” lifestyle, and why it is so threatening to bourgeois society. Co-written by Clouzot and his wife, Véra (star of DIABOLIQUE). Winner of the 1961 Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film. In French with English subtitles.
