Inferno



In 1964, Clouzot set out to film the story of a man suffering the agonies of paranoid jealousy over his young wife (Romy Schneider). Clouzot spent months shooting screen tests and experimenting with the hallucinatory effects, but the film was shut down three weeks into production. Now, thanks to interviews with the original crew and using Clouzot’s test footage, we have a chance to witness what might have been.
