Biography

Niort, Deux-Sèvres, France
After a decade as a screenwriter, Clouzot made his directorial debut in 1942. His next film, Le corbeau (1943) had the distinction of being banned both by the Nazis and the victorious French forces for differing reasons. He shot to international fame with The Wages of Fear (1953) and consolidated that success with Diabolique (1955), but continuous ill-health caused large gaps in his output, and several projects had to be abandoned (though one, L'Enfer (1994), was subsequently filmed by Claude Chabrol). His films are typically relentless suspense thrillers, similar to Hitchcock's, but with far less light relief. Read more...
