Romy Schneider dans quelques extraits du film “L’enfer”
film inachevé d’Henri-Georges Clouzot, 1964
Tiré de “L’Enfer d’Henri-Georges Clouzot” de Serge Bromberg et Ruxandra Medrea
Documentary shows color and black-and-white studio tests Clouzot did with his stunning 26-year-old star, Romy Schneider.
Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno remained unfinished in 1964.
“The film depicts the exteme jealousy of a hotelier, Marcel (Serge Reggiani, then 42 years old), towards his wife, Odette (Romy Schneider, then 26 year old). It was shot partly in in black-and-white, partly in colour. Clouzot selected the title as an allusion to Dante’s Inferno, and the names Odette and Marcel refer to characters in Marcel Proust’s novel À la recherche du temps perdu.”
