Details

‘An unholy art film collision of nunsploitation, murder thriller, and philosophical puzzle’ Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital

A young woman is questioned by a detective (Jean-Louis Trintignant, Trans-Europ-Express, The Conformist), a repressed judge (Michael Lonsdale, Moonraker), a curious nun, a sexually-obsessed priest and her lawyer, all of whom suspect her of being a modern witch. The girl who shared her apartment has been found dead, bound to the posts of her bed, a pair of scissors impaled in her heart. Does the woman have the powers to make all around her fall prey to her spell, forcing them to slide progressively into desire, lust and, ultimately, the unknown?

This erotic drama from one of the most ground-breaking and daring of the post-war French filmmakers, Alain Robbe-Grillet (writer of the classic Last Year in Marienbad) is presented here in a beautiful High Definition transfer, complete with revealing and comprehensive exclusive extra features including a richly detailed audio commentary by Video Watchdog’s Tim Lucas.
