The Wages of fearDVD - 2005 | French
In the squalid, impoverished South American town of Las Piedras, desperate men and women from all over the world scrape out a living and dream of escape, under the watchful eye of the ruling Southern Oil Company. When a well explodes 300 miles away, the American company conscripts four of these unfortunates to drive trucks loaded with volatile nitroglycerin through treacherous mountains, a suicide mission that is their only way out. With The Wages of Fear, legendary director Henri-Georges Clouzot created one of the greatest thrillers ever committed to celluloid--an epic portrait of courage and cowardice, bursting with white-knuckle suspense and raw emotion. The DVD features a new, restored high-definition digital transfer, new interviews with Clouzot's biographer and assistant director, the trailer, and more.
