Le Salaire de la peur

The Wage of Fear

NB: TICKETING HANDLED BY RESPECTIVE VENUES


In a deprived city of a South-American country, four eccentric men are joined for a hazardous adventure: Luigi, the Italian, a German and two French, Mario and Mr. Jo, the old horse. To receive a very advantageous bonus, the adventurers must transport important quantities of nitroglycerin to put down a fire due to oil. The journey is extremely dangerous and the first truck, driven by Luigi, explodes. Mario and Jo are left but the latter, stroke by fear, is the shadow of himself. Mario becomes the leader of the expedition.
