Lancelot du lac [Lancelot of the Lake]

Paris: Mara Films, 1974. Vintage French theatrical poster for the 1974 film, "Lancelot du lac" (released in the US and UK as "Lancelot of the Lake") directed by Robert Bresson.

Bresson’s bloody take on the King Arthur legend was an expansion of the aesthetic he had already developed, where the violence that was once implied became a reality—though certainly still quite surreal.

Near Fine condition, with a couple of repaired tears at the top edge and an extremely faint, almost negligible discoloration toward the top. 24 x 32 inches, rolled, on archival linen.
