Film Description

Clouzot's excellent film is set in a seedy Latin-american outpost, a freelance world of ex-pat oil workers and tanker drivers where anything goes. Greed is the name of the game and crazy risks must be taken. The heroic and sordid struggle to transport nitro-glycerine to put out an oil fire is magnificently portrayed, and Montand is at the handsome height of his charm. Karel Reisz memorably described the film as 'unselectively and impartially anti-everything'!
