    • Synopsis
    • In 1964, Henri-Georges Clouzot chose Romy Schneider, age 26, and Serge Reggiani, 42, to be the stars of L’ENFER. It was an enigmatic and original project with an unlimited budget that was to be a cinematic “event” upon its release. But after three weeks of shooting, things took a turn for the worse. The project was stopped, and the images, which were said to be “incredible”, would remain unseen.
      These images, forgotten for over half a century, were recently found and are more breathtaking than legend had predicted. They tell us of a unique film about madness and jealousy, filmed in the first-person, the story of an ill-fated film shoot, and of Henri-Georges Clouzot, who had given free reign to his filmmaking genius.
      Never has Romy been so beautiful and hypnotic. Never will an auteur be as close and as passionately linked to a hero he has created.
