Tout le monde connaît ce classique de Clouzot. La relation amour-haine entre Montand et Vanel. Les décors superbes. La tension et le suspense. La dûreté du propos et de la réalisation. En bref, un superbe film qui n'a pas pris une ride.
Cette édition par contre est loin d'être parfaite. Déjà Criterion ne propose aucun supplément, l'image n'est pas excellente (le film n'est pas récent mais quand même). Et surtout pour ceux qui ne maîtrisent pas l'italien, l'espagnol et l'allemand, il faudra mettre les sous-titres anglais pour comprendre les dialogues avec les étrangers mercenaires du volant; du coup, les dialogues en français seront aussi sous-titrés. Un petit peu gênant donc. Mieux vaut se diriger vers une édition française puisqu'il n'y a rien d'indispensable ici (ce qui est rare pour un DVD criterion).
A noter, l'excellent remake du film réalisé par William Friedkin sous le titre de "Sorcerer".

L'image alterne le très bon et le beaucoup moins bon. Certains plans, notamment les gros plans, sont très beaux, très contrastés et très définis. D'autres, peu nombreux, ont un aspect vidéo et grisâtre hideux, avec une absence complète de détails et de profondeur, comme s'ils avaient été oubliés lors de la restauration du film. Enfin, la majeure partie du film se situe entre ces 2 points, avec une définition assez correcte mais sans plus, un manque global de profondeur et de définition se traduisant, en définitive, par un aspect pas assez net pour le support (en opposition avec les quelques plans très définis).

La piste son est elle aussi loin d'être la meilleure jamais proposée par Criterion, à commencer par des spécifications techniques loin d'être au maximum des capacités du support. Cependant, il faut se souvenir que Le salaire de la peur fut un des premiers BR de l'éditeur, ceci pouvant expliquer cela (et ceci les critiques très positives sur l'image, que je trouve trop élogieuses au vu du résultat, comme c'est le cas aussi pour Les 400 coups).
Quoiqu'il en soit, en pratique, la piste est très limitée, tant pour la musique, étouffée, que les dialogues, le tout pour un rendu très plat. Cependant, la piste est très propre, avec aucun dommage et un souffle très limité.

Je suis très déçu parce que les détails du produit dire que le DVD est multilingue (anglais, français, italien, allemand, russe et espagnol), mais c'est SEULEMENT en français! Malheureusement, je ne comprends pas le français et le DVD est inutile pour moi (je vous écris avec Google Translate).
Je me sens dupé.

HASH(0x966c57bc) étoiles sur 5 *EXPLOSIVES* 15 juin 2000
Par karl b. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It is difficult to overstate what a terrific blend of suspense, biting images, and nihilistic philosophy this film is. It works at several levels, the most compelling being a thoroughly existential treatment of the action adventure movie. Clouzot layers his irreverent cynicism into every aspect of the film, but it is actuated by the tight interplay of the characters. They are the kind of fugitives, hucksters, fortune seekers, down on their luckers you'd expect to find at a squalid, end of the world drilling camp. The director portrays them all in a dour, brave light as they struggle with futility and fear.
The corruption, exploitation and innocence, are brought to a boil by a raging inferno and a couple of truck loads of nitroglycerine. Three hundred miles of rugged roads are all that separates these desperadoes from a ticket out of town. Clouzot rolls his audience into the drama with ingenious visual cues, cables stressed to snapping, tobacco blown from its paper. He uses no gimmicks, though, to impose an artificial sense of spectacle. Everything is shown with a taut authenticity. The film never loses its devil-me-care bravado in spite of all its tension and pathos. Clouzot intersperses little milestones of grace, in a prayer or a dance, with images of death. Alternately-- ambivalence, compassion and admiration are elicited for characters pushed beyond human boundaries and endurance.
It resembles Treasure of the Sierra Madre (another excellent film), but caves in to none of its happy endings, higher ideals, saving benedictions. All here is carried out in a quiet desperation as every vestige of hope, purpose, escape are systematically sabotaged. All that is left is the moment, and survival. The scenes on the bridge, the oil pond, the road, are among the most unforgettable in cinema. The characters strive for freedom but are continually confronted with their interdependence and frailty. The director's final gesture, in the face of potential victory, provides a seal of consistency to this sinister, masterful brew. Clouzot delves into motivations, relationships, doubt. He challenges pat assumptions of life and destiny. It is a remarkable and original film, even more so in the context of the conventions imposed on Hollywood films of that era.

HASH(0x966c6858) étoiles sur 5 Well, the most suspenseful film I have ever seen 18 mai 2009
Par Robert Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
There are two things often said about this film that I would like to strongly agree with: first, it begins rather slowly, and second, it really is one of, if not THE, most suspenseful films ever made.
The first third of the movie moves inexplicably slowly. I can understand many of the reasons why: the attempt to define the characters, to show their interactions with one another, to depict the quiet desperation of their lives to make it plausible that four men would undertake such an astonishingly dangerous job as hauling nitroglycerin over treacherous jungle and mountain dirt roads. Even granting all that, however, the start is by any standard really, really slow. And I suspect that of the people you encounter who proclaim the film a bore either gave up before getting to the good parts or never recovered from the slow start.

The most suspenseful film ever made? Some people assert that the film has been so overhyped along these lines that it would be impossible for any film to come up to one's expectations. There are two edges to this sword. I am far more impressed that despite being hyped as the most suspenseful film ever made, I was nonetheless utterly on the edge of my seat for most of the final 100 minutes. And if some of the scenes seem somewhat familiar, it is undoubtedly because of the score of films that have plundered this film for their own tension-filled scenes.

I have often thought that Yves Montand was, at his best, one of the more compelling performers of the last half of the twentieth century. He wasn't consistently successful internationally. Sometimes one or two decades would come between some of his greatest triumphs. To illustrate, I think Montand's two greatest film appearances were THE WAGES OF FEAR (1953) and JEAN DE FLORETTE/MANON OF THE SPRING (1986), only thirty-three years apart.

Many viewers are not comfortable with the very ending of the movie and I I have to agree somewhat. Nihilism was very fashionable in the early 1950s in European cinema. The ending, which seems completely unnecessary and not organically connected with the rest of the film, reflects less any inner necessity for a downer ending than the general mood in "serious" films at the time. So, in a sense, one could argue that this movie manages to be one of the great classics of cinema despite a slow beginning and an arbitrarily negativistic ending. Where the film shines is in the utterly riveting journey through the jungle and mountains.

HASH(0x966c64f8) étoiles sur 5 One of the greatest thrillers ever finally gets a worthy DVD 2 octobre 2006
Par Trevor Willsmer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
We can thank the Movie Gods that Jean Gabin didn't want to play a coward or else we'd never have had Charles Vanel's superb performance in Clouzot's The Wages of Fear: it's notable that Friedkin's intriguingly feverish but suspense-free remake didn't even attempt to give its equivalent deadbeat killer a similar arc, despite the fact that the character and his curious shifting relationship with Yves Montand cuts to the very core of the story's take on the nature of courage, bravado and machismo. At the beginning of the film Vanel is the tough guy who can walk the walk, while Montand is his puppy doggish sidekick, throwing over his best friend for his new crush until his feet of clay are revealed when the chips are down. Even in a place where, in the absence of white women the white men cling to each other, this relationship seems to go a few steps beyond mere hero-worship, but when they hit the road the power in the relationship shifts, and in the process we get to watch Yves Montand become a genuine movie star before our very eyes, which is almost as exciting as the road trip to Hell with a truckload of unstable nitro and miles of very, very bumpy roads. Almost, because I doubt there's anything to beat the film's extraordinary double-jeopardy sequence on a rotting platform on a mountain road - a scene pretty much done for real - which takes your breath away until you suddenly realize that the second truck is going to have to do the same thing in even worse conditions... I remember when I saw that at a revival house a couple of years ago I genuinely forgot to breathe during that sequence, and found myself doing the same even on DVD.

Criterion's recent 2-disc DVD is a great improvement on their previous single-disc version in terms of picture quality and extras, but sadly, the `new and improved' subtitle translation is just as politically correct as the old one, dropping most of the obscenities and all of the racist language that's an important part of the hatred and self-loathing that drives the characters to risk everything for a chance for a ticket out of this backwater South American hellhole (amazingly recreated in the Carmargue in France because Montand refused to film in Fascist Spain). The shoot may have been jinxed by delays, accidents and colossal budget overruns, but damn, it was worth it.

HASH(0x966b5540) étoiles sur 5 Great movie in 148-minute format 23 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
I wanted to amend my earlier review. I reviewed the 148-minute VHS version, which I highly recommend. I strongly caution against getting the (less expensive) 131-minute VHS version. The picture quality is very poor and the subtitles are often almost unreadable, i.e. white writing against an almost white background. The full-length VHS and DVD versions are terrific, with clear, crisp picture and perfectly legible subtitles.

HASH(0x966c5bac) étoiles sur 5 VISCERAL THRILLER IN BLU-RAY -- A MASTERPIECE OF WORLD CINEMA 21 avril 2009
Par Robin Simmons - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Iconic, vintage masterpiece in brilliant new transfer.

Criterion's restored hi-def transfer of Henri-Georges Clouzot's controversial, visceral and prescient thriller still grabs the viewer by the throat for a breathless, nihilistic ride.

This legendary film of suspense and despair was deemed "evil" by Time magazine during its 1955 US release. Based on the harrowing 1950 book by George Arnaud, it's a cautionary tale of the true blood-toll of oil and greed.

Filmed in 1951 and first shown in France in 1952, "The Wages of fear" (Le Salaire de la peur) is about four European men at the end of their ropes. In a hell-hole of a South American village, these desperate men accept a job from an American oil company to drive two trucks of unstable nitroglycerine along a treacherous mountain route to an oil fire.

Clouzot, who made less than a dozen films including the acclaimed "Les Diaboliques" and "Quai des orfevres" never flinches from his vision. Although the first half may seem a bit unfocused and meandering it is not because we get to know our characters, the squalid S.A. setting and the uncaring, greed-driven, business-as-usual of the American oil company. The movie literally jump starts when the four hapless men hit the road in their two trucks overloaded with nitro. We understand these men and we ride with them and their emotions. Yves Montand, Charles Vanel, Peter van Eyck and Antonio Centa are terrific as the frantic, fraught drivers.

There's a lot of post WW II existential angst in this tale and that's not surprising. After all, it is French and the ideas of Camus and Sartre permeate this film as they did the decade in which it was produced.

My only memory of this film was a washed out video tape copy with impossible to read subtitles and later a faded 16mm print in film school.

I've watched this Blu-ray version several times now and it is stunning. It looks like a print that just came from the lab. The black and white is crisp, with a wonderful range of grays -- velvety shadows to burnished silver. And the subtitles are always easy to read and perfectly synched to the spoken French. But more important, the rhythm and meaning of the spare dialogue remains.

This gritty film, devoid of sentimentality, follows men who live in fear. They know death is coming and yet continue with the task at hand until the end. Although my personal philosophy is not that of the drivers, it reminded me to relish the precious moments of life and to live it fully, bravely and in the moment.

This is one in the rather small handful of the greatest films in world cinema. It has never looked better. And it asks questions that are relevant today: How desperate are we in our need for oil? And what is the final price? Highest recommendation.

Superior extras include:
Interviews with assistant director Michel Romanoff, Clouzot biographer Marc Godlin and Yves Montand from 1988). A great documentary on Clouzot's career "The Enlightened Tyrant." "CENSORED," a revealing look at the cuts made for the initial 1955 U.S. release. And "No Exit," an insightful booklet/essay by novelist Dennis Lehane.
