GOOD NEWS! Crepax at last:

Another long wait is over, this time for UK fans of Italian comic strip wizard Guido Crepax. Unseen in the UK since his heroine Valentina made a brief appearance in Continental Film Review around 1970 ( that is, apart from recent US paperback imports and earlier paperback imports which found their way occasionally into London's Soho bookshops in the 1980s) the best of Crepax is now available to UK readers and in English, thanks to two splendid hardback volumes from the Evergreen imprint of Taschen. Crepax's inimitable Story of O can be found here in one volume (and contains several pages missing from American and even Continental editions) along with his interpretation of Sade's Justine. His equally splendid Venus in Furs can be found in one volume alongside Emmanuelle, and Bianca. ( Can we hope for Valentina some time in the near future? ) - Check out your local book store or buy them cheaper direct from the links on this page:

STORY OF O: The Series (on dvd)

Vol 1: Vol 2: Vol 3: Vol 4: Vol 5:

The 'Story of O' Series (on dvd) Reviewed:
Reviewer: A viewer from Roissy, France (October 10, 2001)

"The film came out on Video on the BRI Home Video in 1994 as a 10 Volume set. Now (2000) it is proposed as a 5 DVD series. Each DVD contains two 60-minute episodes. There is also a quite interesting gallery of stills, with audio comments from the Director, Eric Rochat, as well as an English and a German soundtrack. The most interesting supplement is a full length (nearly nine hours!!!) comment track by the director. With his thick French accent, he manages to give interesting insight in this long erotic movie, and the way he shot it. We learn more about his vision of the Story of O, as well as about the pretty Brazilian actress Claudia Cepeda and the other members of the cast." ( more info' at 'You Have Your Say' page - return to 'Key' for that page )

Stefan writes (See "BibliO" page on this website):

A ten hour version of Hoistoire d'O is a luxury indeed, and despite the Latin American settings, stilted acting, uneven dialogue, dubbing and irritatingly repetitive music there is much to enjoy in this long version of Story of O with a somewhat gamine Claudia Cepeda delivering ultimately a quite charming and sincere interpretation of 'O'. Much thought has gone into the choreography of certain scenes and additional scenes not found in the original novel are not without invention. A prologue introduces each of the ten episodes. The merits of the film gradually win you over. There is much to enjoy....
Brazil. Directed by Ron Williams (actually Eric Rochat) Screenplay Ron Williams and Jennifer Field. With Claudia Cepeda, Paolo Reis and Nelson Freitas.


Story of O Continues aka
"The Fruits of Passion"
"FRUITS OF PASSION - Story of O Continued"(1981)

Story of Oh! So Much More
Reviewer: Jules Verme from Boston, MA May 13, 2002

A delighful exercise in visual poetry "Les Fruits" uses the "Story of O" merely as a pretext for an uplifting tale of submission and deliverance, inventing what should be called the first porno-kabuki movie. It must be seen more than a few times to engage a full appreciation. To my mind i compares only with Greenway's "8+1/2 Women" and Matton's "Spermula" in the category of films that capture the true pathos of sex in narrative. But this one goes one step further in trying to bridge the gap between western and eastern erotics like no other film I've seen. Kinsky is at his best/worst throughout, as an entirely repulsive Sir Stephen. The chinese revolutionary setting is another engaging sidelight which gives the whole possession/liberation dialectics a depth which O never had. A rare jewel of a painting...

FRUITS OF PASSION Reviewed by Bruce Walsh:
Yet another one of those Japanese-French Co-Pro's, produced by Argus Films and Tereyama Productions. This baby sports two directors, and that may explain a few things. Anatole Dawman directed the interiors (the bulk of the flick) from Paris. Hiroko Govaers is responsible for the rest in Tokyo. Set in China in the late 1920s, this is a tale of Kink and Revolution. K2 is Sir Stephen the wealthy Westerner. Isabelle Illiers is "O", the innocent sex slave and wife of Sir S. Arielle (LACE) Dombasle is Natalie, lover of Sir S. and overall hot babe. Plot? "O" goes to work in a bordello at Sir S's request, in order to strengthen their love. Meanwhile, the Clandestine Coolie Commission goes to Sir S. for a loan toward the revolution. This is a Symbolistic, Surrealistic, Sadomasochistic, Seminal Flow of a flick. Loaded with birds and old Orientals and opium. There's a midget with a bird head ruling a flaming hoop, an odd rocking bird sex machine, a guy with a poking fetish, a child abuse/dog thing, a piano playing in the river and Death waltzing in and out of most scenes. And always remember, "Pleasure can be shared, suffering is for Stephen and me."

Eugenie - The Story Of Her Journey Into Perversion [1969] UK £
ALSO available in the USA: US $ Eugenie
Let this Eugenie out of the bottle

Reviewer: Johnnie Mclaren

Eugenie was described by Jess Franco as the film he hated least. With good cause. Whilst some Franco fare is a jumble of sexploitation and poor editing, this little number is one of his best. Erotic without being tacky, and sensual without becoming pornographic, it is an excellent edition to any Eurotica collection.
Beautifully shot in a dreamy coastal landscape, with the awesome Marie Liljedahl and Maria Rohm, it is undoubtedly one of Franco's finest achievements. Dont know why the Amazon details of the film (year and cast) get their facts so wrong- so check the web for further details. Anyway, buy it. And look out for Christopher Lee's interview in the extras. It is one of funniest little vignettes I have seen for a long time. ( originally filmed under the title Philosophy of the Boudoir but not to be confused with another Eurocine movie of that title - Stefan )


"I recommend EUGENIE DE SADE for anyone dipping their toe into Franco ..."

Justine De Sade [1972] uk £

Reviewer: nixon234
I loved this movie. It is an exploitation classic- which is also thankfully uncut. Expensive sets, camp dialogue and beautiful naked (French) women are an irresistible combination for lovers of this ever more popular genre.
Adapted from de Sade, it reflects the author's cynicism that those who do good are taken advantage of- and those who take the advantage gain the prizes. Poor Justine is our eponymous victim.
OK, it is a little unsubtle at times, but that is part of its charm. However the key point about this film is that it is titillating without being tacky. At the end of the day it is good clean fun and a thoroughly good watch. So if you like Eurotica, you will love this.

Borowczyk's Immoral Tales (dvd) US $
"This film is not for the even vaguely prudish or squeamish, but if you can dig a real life lesbian "vampire" in a bathtub of blood, and an incestuous, murderous orgy with the Pope and his two kids, this is the film for you!! Plus, Paloma Picasso has really beautiful eyes, which are prominently featured in several closeups. Those shots alone, which were truncated in the VHS copy I've enjoyed these last 20 years, were enough to make me want to get the widescreen version in DVD." Jamesie-Boy 2003


AND: The Beast / La bête (1975) (dvd) US $

Reviewer: Tony Crosgrey from Fringe Video Fanzine, Peterborough, Ontario (February 4, 2002)
Born in Poland Walerian Borowczyk is both known as a painter and a movie director. His first introduction to film was creating posters for Paris cinemas in the late 1950s, since then he has, made over a dozen films, and has placed himself in a class by himself. Once a respected producer of fine art, he quickly became renown in the low brow community after releasing this film. This DVD has been a highly sought after film in the Borowczyk catalogue, and is considered by some to be "...the most controversial film of the decade". An insane adult reworking of 'The Beauty and the Beast' tale. Forbidden for over 25 years, its is only now finally available uncut in North America. This erotic fable was originally to be part of the Immoral Tales (1974) [Anchorbay Entertainment] anthology, yet was put aside due to it's controversial subject matter then later transformed into this film. Any arthouse crowd respect was probably lost within the first ten minutes of the film. The opening close-up of ahorse's throbbing vagina gave me a bit of a shock, and I soon realized that I was in for a very interesting ride. The financially unstable son, Mathurin (Pierre Benedtti), and very rich, and horny Lucy Broadhurst (Lisbeth Hummel) are soon to be arranged in marriage at the failing Mathurin estate. The home is full of history relating to the families most famous ancestor, Romilda. Lucy immediately becomes fascinated with Romilda, and stumbles upon her diary. The tale is told of the day she was brutally attacked in the woods by a comical man / beast creature with a extra large penis. This scene is both shockingly powerful and hilariously funny all at once. Combining black humour, with graphic sexuality. "...And this beast, possessed of a giant phallus and an insatiable lust, set upon thebeautiful young lady of the house. Two centuries later, the tale of the beast would return in the dreamsof an American heiress contracted to carry the male descendant of the same crumbling artistocraticfamily and their secret..." Borowczyk's erotic masterpiece forbidden for many years is now available uncensored on DVD for the first time from Cult Epics. My mouth was left a gasp from beginning to end with this outrageous film, even without any extras it is well worth the purchase.
