Add to Watchlist

Living in an isolated Mexican town run by Big Oil, Mario is stuck--surrounded by desert and scraping for cash. Fate has humbled his circumstances, but Mario's still a cocky young Sicilian. Then word arrives that an oil well has caught fire. The boss needs strong, brave men to extinguish the flames. It's great money--yet people are reluctant to take the job. Maybe it's the catch: they'll be driving huge trucks along a badly-maintained mountain road with sheer drop-offs. Maybe it's the other catch: the trucks will be loaded with nitroglycerin. Yves Montand plays the lead in this classic existential thriller.
