Flicker Alley nabs ‘ Inferno’ in U.S.

Docu on Clouzot film sells widely abroad

PARIS — Rolling off its Cesar win for doc, “Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno” has been picked up for U.S. distribution by Flicker Alley.

Repped by Gallic mini-major MK2, Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea’s docu was acquired by Park Circus (U.K.), Filmswelike (Canada), ABC Distribution (Benelux), Against Gravity (Poland), Tag (Brazil) and Orlando (Israel).

Bowing in Cannes in 2009, the doc concerns Clouzot’s aborted attempt to make a pic about jealousy and madness. Doc has become a fixture on the fest circuit, notably screening at Telluride, Toronto, Thessaloniki and Rotterdam.

Starring Romy Schneider and Serge Reggiani, “Inferno” was left unfinished by Clouzot in 1964 after production upheavals. Bromberg and Medrea used exclusive archives, interviews, re-enactments and Clouzot’s own notes and storyboards to reconstruct his original vision.

Cluzot, who was known as the French Hitchcock, directed film noirs including “Quai des Orfevres” and “Les diaboliques.”
