Based on a script by Clouzot, the aim of this movie is to describe the patholgy and psychology of man, Francois, who succumb slowly under the weight of jealousy. This movie is amazing, and describe the psychological aspect of this "disease" in a very defined way. Clouzot has actually done a long study of the phenomenon of jealousy, it is therefore highly detailed and enlighted by Chabrol art to slow down the pace of the movie up to the point that, just like Francois, time seems to be infinite. It's a mental torture for Francois, he is prisoner of his thoughts and his mind killing the reality slowly. This movie is a must see!!!!

It is difficult to not become completely engulfed in mental frenzy by this film. Basically, it is about a husband who becomes obsessed with the notion that his wife is having an affair with everybody. He follows her wherever she goes and accuses her of infidelity. He is so consumed by this belief (and we see what he sees too) that he eventually locks his wife away. By this stage he is hearing conversations in his head and had gone totally mad. Very convincing performances which leave you feeling incredulous as to this man's mental state.

For a study in jealousy L'Enfer (Hell) bears comparison with Hitchcock or Polanski at their best. Francois Cluzet's descent into madness is a truly great performance. The camera simply loves Emmanuele Beart, Cluzet's wife in the film. The viewer is left guessing whether Beart's affairs are reality or Cluzet's increasingly frenetic fantasies. One of the great films of the genre.

This film has all the suspense of a Hitchcock film, it is dark, twisting its way through the misplaced jealousy of a husband, as he slowly decends into madness. Beart role as the wife is very well excecuted, as she gives off a fine performance. A film definately worth watching again and again.

French New Wave director, actor, producer and screenwriter Claude Chabrol`s forty-fifth feature film which he wrote, is an adaptation of a screenplay written by French screenwriter, producer and director Henri-Georges Clouzot (1907-1977) who suffered a heart attack during the making of the film in 1964 which led to the production being stopped. Claude Chabrol`s film was shot on various locations in Southern France and was produced by French director and producer Marin Karmitz. It tells the story about Paul Prieur, a successful hotel manager who lives an idyllic life with his wife Nelly and their young son Vincent at a lakeside hotel in France. Paul and Nelly have been married for seven years and are happy together, but Paul`s job is wearing him out and he begins to become suspicious about things. These sudden suspicions gradually increases and when Paul suspects his wife of having an affair, his personality alters and threatens both his own and Nelly`s life.

This visually ardent and character-driven French production draws a pervasive study of character about a seemingly happy man who one warm summer when suddenly struck by jealousy, descends into a state of madness and loses his grip on reality. Claude Chabrol`s riveting and well-paced internal voyage goes far into the excruciating and nightmarish mind of the protagonist and the persistent suspense in this clinical psychological thriller which examines themes such as marriage, jealousy and mental illness, is reinforced by his precise and acute directing, the rigorous narrative structure and the efficient editing by Claude Chabrol`s frequent collaborator Monique Fardoulis. The score by his long-time collaborator and son Matthieu Chabrol emphasizes the significant atmosphere in this luminous drama which is impelled by Francois Cluzet`s multifaceted acting performance in a complicated role and a good acting performance by Emmanuelle Béart.

Format: DVD
This is a must see film about Narcissism, which is a very serious and incurable, permanent psychological disorder of the mind. Narcissists can't (sociopaths/psychopaths) or won't (NPDs) want to recognise, let alone accept or encourage the boundaries others set for themselves so that a healthy respect for the individual results. Non acceptance of others' boundaries or individuality makes trust and acceptance impossible. The narcissist knows he can't trust himself so he can't trust other either. All other's 'own self' must naturally reflect the mind of the narcissist (to pose no threat). If it does differ, and pose a threat, the narcissist will / must erode the individuality of the outside target / 'significant' other to make them reflect their reality so that both personalities are the same (reflection in the mirror effect). Fact and fiction becomes interwoven, and this is what happens here in this film. The target (wife) is the mirror image of the male (husband) because he can't look beyond himself to trust his wife. In this film, the emerging manifestation of the husband's narcissistic disorder believes that his beautiful wife is having an affair. The fact that she isn't doing this makes no impact on him. The film also takes you into the mind of the narcissist husband becuase you too, as the viewer, are not quite sure if the wife is having a real affair either. Therefore, to the husband she is having an affair simply because he believes it to be so. Fiction becomes fused with fact. She can't prove to him that she is faithful because only his version of 'reality' matters - no matter how fictional in reality.Read more ›
