La Papesse (Mario Mercier, 1975)

Mercier was just thirty years old at the time he made La Papesse, his third and last film. He continued to write for many years (his book The Diary of Jane is, apocryphally, the basis of the Breaking Benjamin song of the same name), but never made another movie. After watching this one, I can see why.

I'm not even going to try and give you a plot summary, partially because the film is almost entirely incomprehensible (it has something to do with Satanism, and the country, and a bunch of, um, orgies or something, and symbolism--if you fast-forward thirty years, it got done a whole lot better in Sheitan), and partially because if I did, it would sound a whole lot like a far more sexually explicit, and not nearly as good, The Wicker Man. It doesn't become entirely obvious until relatively late in the movie, or maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention, but once you get far enough it's obvious (especially given the timeframe of the film's release) that Mercier had either seen Robin Hardy's film or read the novel upon which it is based. Unfortunately, when he was adapting it, he decided to sacrifice such niceties as coherence, characterization, and even the meager budget enjoyed by Hardy for more breasts. Which does not translate into more erotica; there's more of that in the first banter between Edward Woodward and Britt Ekland than there is in this entire movie. You might have a good time with it given the right ingestables, but please, don't try to watch it sober. I kept having to check to see if my eyes were bleeding. (half)

This French farce could have been an exceptional erotic film, however they chose to go soft on the beatings and sex scenes. Instead they have "hippie" looking people with huge crotch bushes dancing around the fire someplace in the (Spanish) desert! Nothing remotely erotic or exceptionally worth watching. The sex scenes are really lame as you never see any body parts of the men, and rarely is there anyone doing anything remotely daring or exciting. There are some nude women dancing around in various sequences, but when the big moment comes to brutally "whip" the star, its a phony whipping sequence and they show nothing! I highly recommend "The Story of O" or "The Image" as alternative films of this genre that really deliver the goods!

It's not because i'm french that i want to defrend absolutely french cinema, but obviously, the person before me didn't all understand.By the time it was made, you couldn't show everything on a movie screen, isn't that obvious?!!The film was even strictly forbidden for several years.
The main interest is ritual scenes, for all the characters (except the man and his wife) were played by real witches.Appreciate...

On receipt of this film and haveing viewed all the way through, I can only say that i have rarely seen a more disappointing and boring film.

The storyline is poor, the action banal and anyone who buys this rubbish needs their head examining.
