Films Worth Your While

L’Enfer de Henri-Georges Clouzot   ***   (vo French)

If you are a cinephile, an admirer of Romy Schneider or fascinated by the creative process, do not miss this study of French director Henri-Georges Clouzot’s filming of L’Enfer (with the gloriously young Schneider), never finished due to various circumstances which you will discover. Having become a legendary auteur after such works as Le Salaire de la Peur, Les Diaboliques, or his ground-breaking documentary, Le Mystère Picasso, Clouzot had become more and more demanding and difficult to work with. This documentary takes us into his world and back to the mood of the 60s, with all its novelties and excesses.

What do they say about being careful what you wish for? Here’s a fun animated story for all ages about a fanatic inventor, who from childhood has fiddled with new-fangled ideas. When his dream of a machine that creates whatever food he orders comes to fruition, all hell breaks loose, literally. Good fun and some fine moral lessons.
