Made in 1951, featuring an all-female cast, it’s far from the New Wave, and yet equally as daring in its own way.The title makes it sound like a pleasant romp through woodlands, but this film is not at all light-hearted.In this story of four men agreeing to drive a shipment of volatile nitro-glycerine through jungle roads in South America, every jolt of the two trucks could be fatal. We see the fear behind the machismo, the desperation behind the posturing.We emotionally invest in these men even as we know they might be blown to bits in a moment.

This makes the outbursts of the jealous headmistress ugly and difficult to watch.

has a cult following, I think because it deals with lesbianism in a very direct and non-voyeuristic way.

And by that I don’t mean their shoes match their handbags.

She changes from vulnerability to insanity in a moment.
