Four desperate men take on a daring mission when they agree to drive trucks loaded with highly explosive nitroglycerin through a South American mountain route. Friendships are tested while rivalries develop as they embark upon the perilous journey.
A masterclass in sustained dramatic tension, Clouzot’s white-knuckle thriller won both Berlinale’s Golden Bear and Cannes’ Grand Prix. This nihilistic journey to the heart of corporate greed and personal obsession shudders with edge-of-your-seat thrills, as every bump in the road is viscerally felt.
