La Bete [The Beast]

Neuilly-sur-Seine, France: Argos Films, 1975. Collection of five vintage borderless reference photographs from the 1975 French film, showing actress Lisbeth Hummel and parts of Guy Trejan. Originally a short segment that functioned as the final installment of Borowczyk's "Immoral Tales" (1973), expanded in 1975 by the director into a surreal chamber drama.

Loosely based on Prosper Merimee's 1869 novella "Lokis." A young newlywed in the French countryside suspects her husband may be hiding a bestial secret. Noted director Walerian Borowczyk's sixth film, a surreal, graphically explicit journey banned in the UK and US at the time of release, now rightfully considered a cult classic.

Set in the woods of France.

5 x 7 inches. Near Fine, with the slightest hint of wear to the corners.
