The Beast is an erotic masterpiece from the controversial exponent of the genre – Walerian Borowczyk. This sexual fantasia xcaused outrage when it was first screened in 1975 and was refused a certificate until 26 years later.

A modern day version of Beauty & The Beast. The Beast is the story of a young American heiress Lucy Broadhurst, betrothed 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 of the most erotic, and at the same time hilarious finales of all time.
