Heaven



Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno (French title: L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot) is a film directed, written and produced by Henri-Georges Clouzot, cinematography by Andréas Winding and Armand Thirard, which remained unfinished in 1964.

The film depicts the extreme jealousy of a hotelier, Marcel (Serge Reggiani, then 42 years old), towards his wife, Odette (Romy Schneider, then 26 years old). It was shot partly in black-and-white, partly in colour. Clouzot selected the title as an allusion to Dante's Inferno, and the names Odette and Marcel refer to characters inMarcel Proust's novel À la recherche du temps perdu.

Despite an unlimited budget from Columbia Pictures—Clouzot worked with three crews and 150 technicians—the shooting was beset by severe problems: everyone suffered from the record heat during July in the Cantal region; the main actor Serge Reggiani claimed to be ill (Jean-Louis Trintignant was asked to replace him); the artificial lake below the Garabit viaduct, an important part of the location, was about to be emptied by the local authorities; then Clouzot suffered a heart attack and was hospitalised in Saint-Flour. After three weeks, the film was abandoned.

More (MMXIII).


Some of the best of this past year's music, luminously all sort of Blues-related songs - yet all in their own, reinvented manner - blended together for your own pleasure. Nothing particularly obscure, experimental or dejected, as of for today: but just a set of twelve beautiful, soulful, lethargic songs that we used to play and enjoy all alone, or with the Family and Friends along the year, and that could nicely accompany you through the rising year's special, melancholic light. This can be considered as a mirror tape of the Summer Mix from July 2013, and played right next to, before or after it. Mixed with care, in one take, despite the mistakes.

Featuring:  

Dean Blunt, V
Psychic Ills, FBI
Steve Gunn, New Decline
Alasdair Roberts and Friends, Fusion of Horizons
Bonnie Prince Billy, Ending It (As I Do)
Bill Callahan, Spring
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Higgs Boson Blues
Date Palms, Yuba Source Part II
Midlake, The Old and the Young
Ignatz, Abandon the Night
Ed Askew, Blue Eyed Baby
Arp, More (Blues)

Dedicated to the memory of Suzanne Tytelman (1930-2013).
