Claude Chabrol: 1990’s Revisited - 3 Tales of Obsession And Suspense
A brand new digital presentation!

THE TORMENT (L’ENFER) is directed and adapted by Chabrol from the screenplay by Henri-Georges Clouzot for the unfinished film L’ENFER, which Clouzot began shooting in 1964 but was unable to complete. Paul (François Cluzet) has just bought a charming waterfront hotel in the heart of France. In debt for the next ten years, he sets to work with his beautiful new wife, Nelly (Emmanuelle Béart). The life of the young couple resembles a dream come true until Paul’s suspicions and jealousy get the best of him. His increasing obsession turns into madness that ends in a tragedy.
