The Beast

La Bête

1975

Walerian Borowczyk
Director
Argos Films
Production COmpany

Borowczyk's almost hard core musings on the nature of man's relation to the beast. Very erotic and disturbing in its 1976 Euro art porn way. 3 Disc set includes recently discovered "complete version". I'd never be seen dead with this movie. Now, where did I put my credit card. . .

-The Sloth

For those of us who like our 18th century French folk tales without Alan Menken lyrics and talking furniture, here ya go.
