The story of Inferno, the unfinished film by the auteur of Diabolique and The Wages of Fear, is legend. An audaciously experimental film with a virtually unlimited budget, it might have been Clouzot’s greatest achievement. But after only three weeks, the project was stopped, and the images, rumored to be incredible, were shelved. Recently unearthed, the surviving footage proves even more breathtaking than expected; now fleshed out with rediscovered storyboards, photographs and production records, plus interviews with crew members (including Costa-Gavras), the tests and rushes reveal the outlines of a lost treasure.
