To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A very good dual edition (Blu-ray, Dvd) with a good quality of image and sound for a 40 years old film. Includes a longer version of the original film and another extras such as the short "A private collection" and a 24 booklet with information about the film. Furthermore is not very expensive.
Yes, 'immoral'. whatever that word means in this post-modernist world. However, the tales tell us more about the director than about the film's analysis of the relationship between sex and power. Bob Trueman
Arrived within 24 hours and this collection is the type of collection that you need to watch 2 or 3 times to 'understand' what the director is trying to say. A collection ideal for film clubs or people who analyse films not general Saturday night viewing with love ones. Digital enhancement is well down and comes with English sub-titles. Not sure what is the point of The beast film. The only one that's is pointless in my view - a women having sex with a fictitious devil like creature (poor effects/costume). The other tales - brother taking advantage of 'naïve or not' sister. Horror tales - woman bathing in virgins blood to retain youth, lesbianism and the catholic church are all designed to shock when originally filmed and it probably did. But when compared to modern horror films (hostel etc.) or similar topics (Dogtooth, temptation of Christ) this collection is a little tame. Does not shock anymore - probably says something about our society. The helper in the blood bathing I feel is very attractive and familiar from other films - not sure where- need to investigate. Generally the actors are unknowns.
Excellent release and far better than the german blu-ray edition, where the episode "LA BÊTE DU GÉVAUDAN" is cut by more than 5 minutes.The english blu-ray features the real uncut 5 episode version as originally intended by the director. The image quality is the best what I have seen so far. Very interesting extras and interviews. Only the music sound quality in the a.m. episode film could have been better. Nevertheless a fascinating release with on of the best eroic movies ever made.
