L'enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot

Serge Bromberg &
Ruxandra Medrea, dirs.

In 2009, Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea
released a 94 minute documentary with material selected from 15 hours (185 reels) of found scenes under the name
L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot.
Bromberg was caught for two hours in a stalled elevator with a woman who turned out to be Clouzot's second wife, Inès de Gonzalez.
Upon learning the identity of the woman and of the existence of the footage, Bromberg convinced her to release it to make his film.
The documentary includes interviews with nine cast and crew members. Bromberg used actors to shoot some scenes where dialogue had to be delivered; the found material, which included some 30 hours of soundtrack, didn't contain suitable material.

Clouzot's actual film L'Enfer
would have been groundbreaking and amazing, had it ever been completed and released.
