La Bête [The Beast]

N.p. N.p., Circa 1975. Vintage oversize borderless reference photograph from the 1975 French film.

Originally conceived as a short film, used as the final installment of director Walerian Borowczyk's anthology film "Immoral Tales" (1973), and 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, banned in the UK and US at the time of release, now rightfully considered a cult classic.

Set in the woods of France.

12 x 9.5 inches. Very Good plus, with light wear at the corners.
