This is an extraordinary movie. From the opening scene showing the
squalor of a Latin American town with filth and vultures in the street
and naked children begging for food amid the oppressive, fly-stirred
heat, to the finale on a winding mountain road, it is just plain
fascinating. True, some of the action does not bear close scrutiny. One
does not siphon nitroclycerine nor does one avoid potholes or bumps in
the road by driving at forty miles per hour. No matter. Let's allow a
little license. And the title doesn't entirely make sense because the
wages of sin are death, but the wages of those who followed their fear
and did not seek to drive a nitroclycerine truck over 300 miles of bad
road are life. Again, no matter.
This is such an original movie, every scene like little or nothing
you've ever seen before (and for sure will never see again), that the
little inconsistencies and some stretching of what is possible are not
important. This is man against nature, man against himself reduced to a
simple task. It is life in the raw. One mistake and you are dead.
Yves Montand has the lead as Mario, a Frenchman stranded in this
god-forsaken town with only one way out: get enough money to pay for
airfare. Charles Vanel is the older, tin-horn dandy who ends up with a
case of the shakes. Peter Van Eyck is the man with the nerves of steel
who finds this little adventure a piece of cake after forced labor in
the salt mines for the Nazis. And Folco Lulli is Luigi, the happy,
singing baker who hopes to return to Italy with the two thousand
dollars they are paying him to drive the nitro-loaded truck.
This is a film depicting the primitive nature of a macho mentality.
There's a lot of posturing. Every event is a potential test of manhood.
Status and privilege are flouted. The weak and the poor do not inherit
Henri-Georges Clouzet directs and somehow manages to come up with a
work of genius. One wonders how. The story, on the face of it, would
seem to belong in the slush pile of a ten-cent pulp fiction mag from
the 1930's. The acting is good, very good in places, but not great. The
cinematography is straightforward, but nonetheless very effective. It
is lean and focused always, showing us what needs to be seen without
drawing attention to itself: the invisible style, which is the best.
Clouzet's direction is characterized by a vivid depiction of things
that we can feel: the mud and filth in the streets, the desperation and
the boredom, the cruelty and meanness of men, the oil on their bodies,
the singular fact of a ton of nitro in the back seat so that every move
is a neuron-exposing adventure. I think that the visceral experience
from beginning to end and the fine pacing are the essence of what makes
this a great film.
Clouzet's wife, Vera Clouzet, plays Linda who first appears scrubbing
the floor in an open-air bistro. She is rather extraordinary herself,
finely made up and creamy white like a star of the silent film era. She
grovels a lot, especially for Mario. She provides the counter-point,
the contrast for the testosterone action of the movie.
No student of film should miss this. It would be like missing Citizen
Kane or Dr. Strangelove or especially The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,
which it vaguely and strangely resembles. "La salaire de la peur" is,
regardless of its flaws, one of the best ever made.
