Guy de Maupassant - The Inn

A young mountain guide finds himself in sole charge of a remote snowbound Alpine hotel. Stars Robin Laing.

Published in 1886, Guy de Maupassant's haunting short story is a wintry, snowbound tale of loneliness and dark imaginings, as a young mountain guide finds himself in sole charge of a remote Alpine hotel.

It begins with the first stirrings of a love affair; it ends in mystery and mayhem.
