One of the greatest thrillers ever filmed.

In a squalid South American oil town, four desperate men sign on for a suicide mission: to drive trucks loaded with nitroglycerin over a treacherous mountain route to a faraway oil fire. The result is a white-knuckle ride from France’s legendary master of suspense, Henri-Georges Clouzot. The film was a worldwide and US hit despite being shortened by 43 minutes. You’ll see a beautiful new restoration of the complete uncut version that won the best film award at the Cannes Film Festival. Starring Yves Montand, Charles Vanel, and Véra Clouzot. (147 mins., 35mm, in French with English subtitles)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
