A great classic

5 years, 1 month ago at Dec 30 15:12
Since this movie has a really impressive reputation, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, even though some old classics sometimes don’t really live up to their reputation, this one certainly didn’t disappoint me. Indeed, even though the damned thing is almost 60 years old, it has aged very well. Indeed, it is considered as one of the greasted ... read more

In the South American jungle supplies of nitroglycerin are needed at a remote oil field. The oil company pays four men to deliver the supplies in two trucks. A tense rivalry develops between the two sets of drivers and on the rough remote roads the slightest jolt can result in death.

"לעיירה נידחת וענייה בדרום אמריקה מגיעים מספר מהגרים מאירופה. להגיע לאותה עיירה עולה גרושים, אבל לצאת ממנה עולה הון. אין מקומות עבודה וכל מה שיש לעשות זה להשתכר בבר מקומי בשיא החום. לארבעה גברים מגיעה הזדמנות חד פעמית להרוויח 2000 דולר אם יקחו על עצמם משימה מסוכנת: בכביש משובש הם"

"Mahtava elokuva. Tykkään silti ehkä hieman Friedkinin Sorcerer elokuvasta. Mutta silti loistavasti kuvattu kuvaus ahdistuneisuudesta, pelosta ja siitä kuinka pitkälle raha meitä kuljettaa. Neljän miehen esittämä porukka tekee raavan miehen työn ja heidän matkaansa on hieno seurata. Varsinkin Charles Vanelin esittämä Mr. Jo on yksi parhaimmista tämä aikakauden sivurooleista. "

" Note : This movie is almost 60 years old but it has aged pretty well. It is definitely a fascinating picture and one of the greasted classics produced in France. There is no CGI, no expansive special effects but still it really succeeds in being completely suspensfull. The directing is just great and Yves Montand delivers a great perfomance. Definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in French movies. "
