La Bête [The Beast]

Walerian Borowczyk (director, screenwriter)
Sirpa Lane, Lisbeth Hummel, Elisabth Kaza, Pierre Benedetti (starring)

N.p. N.p., Circa 1975. Two vintage oversize borderless French studio still color photographs from the 1975 French film, showing actress Sirpa Lane.

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.
