Drama/ Fantasy/ Horror/ Mystery/ Romance A transgressive sex fable by Walerian Borowczyk based on Beauty And The Beast. It was refused a certificate after it was shown at the 1975 London Film Festival and is now benefiting from relaxation of BBFC policy. This story of an American heiress who dreams of rape by her wolf-man fiance, the nephew of a French Cardinal, is an intelligent and very unusual movie and may be worth a try.
