Aren't these frames of Romy Schneider amazing?



L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot (2009): A documentary on the unfinsihed project of master director Henri-Georges Clouzot. The film (which he began making in 1964) is described as a study of pathological jealousy, a married man's paranoid obsession with his wife's supposed affairs. The documentary holds never before seen footage and gives us insight on the behind the scenes problems that occurred while filming... Stopped for months while the director brooded on images. Tempers frayed, the cast were agonized and eventually the director collapsed with a coronary.

Very much a must see, don't you think? Thank you to Renaud for the heads-up!
Now I just have to figure out where to find it...?

The trailer look amazing all the high-key black and white contrasted with technicolour splashes..

"Tempers frayed, the cast were agonized and eventually the director collapsed with a coronary" - makes Kubrick sound like a puppy!

The documentary looks really interesting, and so does the film - it must've been really disappointing that the project never finished.

A movie about pathological jealousy of a wife having affairs? Tehehehe sounds like it's gonna set feminism back a couple of decades but look how prettyyy the stills are.
