Movie Reviews

Not too memorable Chabrol flick about jealousy.
Doctor Trance | MA, United States | 03/01/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hell (L'Enfer) features Francois Cluzet as the husband who literally flies into a jealous rage at the suspicion that his wife is cheating on him with the town mechanic. With Emmanuelle Beart as his wife, it's not very hard at all to imagine someone insanely jealous over their wife's looks. This movie is full of iconic images of one of the most beautiful acresses in cinema history, including one where Cluzet secretly tails her and sees her putting on lipstick in a window reflection.

There isn't the normal suspense associated with some other Chabrol films, particularly because no upfront crimes are committed, and the only person in turmoil is the husband with himself. It doesn't bring too much tension to the film, until we near the end.

Cluzet's jealousy hits rock bottom when he assembles with family and friends to watch one of their amateur films. First, this film within a film shows innocent interaction with Beart and the mechanic (he helps her remove her shoes), and then it turns to scenes from Cluzet's mind (the mechanic kissing Beart's feet), until he goes ballistic in front of everyone. Some people criticized this character's descent into jealousy, but I found it to be quite believable.

lt's worth one viewing, but it's nowhere near Chabrol's best. It's just not a juicy enough thriller or steady enough drama, to keep us pinned for the duration or wanting a second viewing. This new Kimstim Collection is the 2nd DVD release of the film, and this one features select scenes with audio commentary by Chabrol."
Emmanuel Bearts best film .

"Absolutely enjoyed this film. She's really in her element in this movie. Not just a "bit part" but a full movie devoted to her in it. Great acting by all actors and a good storyline. It's a shame that she's cast as a bit part player in todays Hollywood movies such as Mission Impossible with Tom Cruise. She deserves better...she should stay with French films."
