THE BEAST
LA BÊTE
1975, IFC Midnight, 93 min, France, Dir: Walerian Borowczyk

This oft-banned “Beauty and the Beast” story is perhaps the most notorious film from writer-director Walerian Borowczyk (and was originally planned as a segment of his IMMORAL TALES). When American heiress Lucy Broadhurst (Lisbeth Hummel) arrives at a run-down French estate for an arranged marriage, she hears a legend about a monstrous forest creature that fuels her sexual fantasies. A milestone in erotic horror featuring some beautiful - and very explicit - imagery. In French, Italian and English with English subtitles.
