The Wages Of Fear Blu-Ray + DVD

The Wages Of Fear Blu-Ray + DVD
Based on the 1950 French novel Le Salaire de la Peur and critically hailed upon its original release, The Wages of Fear propelled its director Henri-George Clouzot (Les Diaboliques) to international fame, and is rightly considered a classic of world cinema. In a squalid South American village, four desperate men are hired by a US oil company to embark on a treacherous journey, transporting a volatile cargo of nitro-glycerine to a massive oil well fire. Friendships and courage are pushed to the limit in this nail-biting thriller by a director who would go on to be dubbed the 'French Hitchcock'.
