Banned For 25 Years. Now for the first time the full uncut version of Borowczyk`s controversial film.
The Beast is an erotic masterpiece from the most controversial exponent of the genre- Walerian Borowczyk. This sexual fantasia caused outrage when it was first screened in 1975 and was refused a certificate until 26 years later.
A modern day version of `Beauty and the Beast`, The Beast is the story of a young American heiress, Lucy Broadhurst, bethrothed to the mentally unstable heir to a French aristocratic dynasty. Dark rumours abound about a mystical `beast` and on the night of her wedding Lucy is visited by strange and erotic dreams.
Set in a beautiful gothic chateau, the film features hilarious couplings , not so pure clergy and unwholesome secrets shot in a superb brushstroke style, climaxing in what has to be one the most erotic, and at the same time hilarious finales of all time.
