Editorial Reviews

In the wake of the success (and massive controversy) surrounding
Ken Russell s The Devils, numerous filmmakers rushed to create their
own Inquisition horror films, most of them inspired by the true story
of satanic possession and torture at the convent of Loudun. THE
DEMONS (Les démons) is Jess Franco s stellar entry in the
nunsploitation canon, with a degree of sadism and sexual explicitness
that overshadows its competitors.
The film begins with the torture and burning of an accused witch
who, before the flames consume her, manages to curse the principal
witchfinder and his minions. As a result, members of royalty and the
religious establishment are caused to suffer (or, some might say,
enjoy) a series of human depravities. Franco s camera lingers over
these episodes of torture, sex, and demon possession, and captures
them with a sense of tenderness that is both aesthetically pleasing
and deeply unsettling.
Previously unreleased on video in the U.S., this Redemption
edition has been mastered in HD from the original 35mm negative, and
represents the complete, uncensored version of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery wrapped in riddle July 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
His first shot at directing has similar tones as Last Year At Marienbad as beautiful, beguiling, and bewitching. Is she there and then she isn't as a tale of travels and escapades in ancient Istanbul. Does she? Or doesn't she? One of the 1st true mysteries as riddle wrapped as an enigma. Good stuff from 1963 if you have the heart and head to follow, you too can wind up confused and totally taken by this rapturous beauty. Started before he assisted Alain Resnais and finished sometime after completion of that project so this was three years in the making makes for near perfection as I see it. Go figure if you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Master of Enigmatic Exotica August 25, 2014
By Ramm
"L'Immortelle" is one of several recent releases of films written and directed by French writer and film-maker Alain Robb-Grillet. In North America it appears that the Redemption DVD authoring group have secured the rights to distribute his works - while in England the British Film Institute (BFI) has the honor. Redemption has issued 5 films/disks 'individually' while the BFI has presented them in a nice 6 film retrospective box-set ( a format that is ultimately less expensive per film). The BFI set is , however, in the Euro Region 2 PAL format and requires a 'region-free' DVD player to view. Regardless of 'region code/format' these are films well worth checking out!

The majority of Robb-Grillete's works have been generally un-available for 'home viewing' for decades. - this current collection presents some of his earliest works from the 1960-70's period when he was first trying his hand as a Director, after achieving his initial recognition for scripting the French art-house classic: "Last Year At Marienbad". "L'Immortelle" was, in fact, his first solo directorial outing and it continues to feature many of the surreal and enigmatic elements that were explored in '...Marienbad".

After viewing a body of Robb-Grillete's works, and reading some analysis of his films by cinema scholars, a pattern begins to emerge that helps the viewer to appreciate where he was coming from and what he was trying to achieve. Such background info is really helpful because, without it, his films may initially seem very disjointed and abstract - even by art-house standards.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong description of film. April 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
The Amazon editorial review describes a film, but not this one. This is a strange movie and pretty boring mostly.
Don't buy it until you check it out online elsewhere.
