Henri-Georges Clouzot co-writes and directs this French thriller set in the South American jungle where supplies of nitroglycerine are urgently needed at a remote oil field. After a Mexican oil well catches fire, the unscrupulous American oil company pays four out-of-work men (Yves Montand, Charles Vanel, Folco Lulli and Peter Van Eyck) to deliver the delicate and deadly supplies in two hulking trucks. A tense rivalry quickly develops between the two sets of drivers, a tension magnified by the unforgiving heat, the lure of filthy lucre and the rough and rocky roads where the slightest jolt could result in agonising death.

I saw this movie over 40 years ago. I always thought this was the greatest movie I ever saw.I was quite excited to watch it again after such a long time. And it is still one of the greatest movies of my life! Incredible tension building, fantastic characters, and the unexpected ending a masterpiece.Yves Montand is a particular favourite of mine as an actor and as a chanson singer. His other great movie "the wide blue road"

will hopefully appear in this lists.
