Description

A black comedy of sexual manners set around an arranged wedding to occur on the grounds of an elegant chateau, Walerian Borowczyk's controversial masterpiece should be approached with caution but enjoyed with abandon!! Infamous for the final scene where the titular beast ravishes an American heiress, Lucy Broadhurst (Lisbeth Hummel), on the eve of her wedding to a French aristocrat, the graphic scenes of the beast coupling with its human prey sees the daring Borowczyk (Immoral tales) expound on the animalistic nature of human sexuality. Proving too heavy-handed for the censors, the film, which ravishingly revives the beauty and the beast myth, has been banned for thirty years, now finally comes to DVD in a special director's cut. One of the most bizarre and surreal experiences on film, this depraved tale of animal desire is at once riotous and perverse, and remains a masterwork of arthouse erotic cinema.
