Product Description

Esteemed author Albert Radeck is the toast of the Berlin literati and the object of his stepdaughter Eugenie's affections. However, when his doe-eyed little darling unmasks her sophisticated father figure as a sex-crazed psychopath obsessed with perpetrating the perfect crime, she transforms from innocent ward to a willing accomplice. The deadly duo seduce and destroy everyone in their path - until Eugenie's charms spark a jealous rage in Albert that threatens to consume them both.

Prolific filmmaker Jess Franco (MARQUIS DE SADE'S JUSTINE, SADOMANIA) again brings the writings of the Marquis de Sade to bloody life with the aid of the sinister Paul Muller (EUGENIE...THE STORY OF HER JOURNEY INTO PERVERSION), and the beguiling beauty of Soledad Miranda (VAMPYROS LESBOS, SHE KILLED IN ECSTASY) and Alice Arno (JUSTINE DE SADE). This twisted tale of the perverse has been remastered from its recently discovered original negative and is offered completely uncut and uncensored.

Eugenie (Soledad Miranda) is a shy girl who lives with her famous writer stepfather (Paul Muller) in an isolated villa. Eugenie wiles away her days dressing like a streetwalker and sneaking peeks at hot titles in the library. One day she stumbles on to a slim volume that blends eroticism with murder. Her stepfather confronts her about the illicit peep, but reassures her that "it's high time you read about such things!" Together they conspire to murder a low-rent nudie model in Brussels while using their attendance at a Paris nightclub that same evening to cover their tracks. Once successful, they begin a killing spree targeting prostitutes. A writer (an unwashed Jesus Franco) is aware of their activities, but does nothing to stop them, too mesmerized from afar by their sex-and-death games. Eugenie then sets her sights on a virginal, young jazz musician and jealousy rears its ugly head. Daddy brutally attacks Eugenie and commits suicide, and Eugenie's deathbed confession falls on Franco's disapproving, fascinated ears.

Eugenie de Sade has an awful lot of what's to be expected in any Jesus Franco film. Ragged pans, halting zooms, a few sparsely furnished sets, nightclub scenes and Franco is an extended role. The very same elements appear in the director's many, many lesser films but with Eugenie de Sade he comes close to crafting a masterpiece. The film's success relies heavily on the tiny shoulders of doomed actress Soledad Miranda, who was to die in a car accident shortly after completion. Frequently seen in a crouching position, her knees to her pretty little face (although in some shots she looks much, much older than her 26 years), Miranda creates sexual tension by just being there.

Eugenie de Sade is a well acted sleazefest that entertains but is ultimately rather forgettable. If you're looking for T&A or are a Franco fan then this one should be right up you're alley, otherwise just move along.

"Eugenie de Sade" (1974) is directed by Jess Franco. The movie takes only a few of the ideas from the Marquis de Sade's(1740-1814) novella "Eugenie de Franval", which are then updated to modern times. The movie involves a father and daughter who are having an incestuous relationship and go about committing murder for sexual pleasure. The incestuous affair is part of the novella, but the part about going around and committing murder for sexual pleasure is Franco's idea. The movie is low budget and average in presentation and a bit slow, but also strangely alluring with the enigmatic Soledad Miranda stealing the show. The film seems to view better in French with English subtitles, rather than watching it with the dubbed English.

This dvd includes a 20 minute interview with the director where he discusses the film and how it came about. He also talks about Soledad Miranda and his history with her in films. The dvd that I received came with an lighter illustrated cover as opposed to the dark photo shown of Soledad Miranda. The back cover was the same as shown. The illustrated cover appears similar to the upper portion of the one used on French (2 dvd) set that also had "Justine de Sade".

As an aside, after watching the movie, I was curious to read the novella which focuses on the father separating the daughter from her mother and making the daughter despise her mother. The father begins incestuous relations with the daughter when she is about 17, and seems bent on defaming his virtuous wife at every turn. Only at the end does he realize that he has destroyed everything that was good in his life after he has fallen upon a misfortune.

If you are a Jess Franco fan you will not be disappointed.

The transfer on the Blue Underground DVD looks fantastic.

I like this film very much. It is one of the better Franco films and it is obvious that he was very much interested in the subject (the de Sade novel on which the film is based). So he created an interesting film, despite the fact, that he only had a small budget at his disposal. Soledad Miranda's and Paul Muller's performances are impeccable and even Franco's acting (as writer Attila Tanner) is acceptable, something that cannot be said of many of his other performances in his own films.

The presentation of the film itself is also flawless. The picture quality is very good and much better than in the previous DVD releases of this movie.

It is too bad that in my opinion the same cannot be said abouth the extras. My main interest (in fact my most important motive to buy this DVD) is the Jess Franco interview (ca. 20 minutes). I expected him to talk about the film, how the production was approached, how the shooting went, the casting, anecdotes, whatever he remembered about the movie. And what do we learn? Almost nothing of it all. He talks about de Sade, how he discovered his writings and then of course there is the inevitable talk about Soledad Miranda. Don't get me wrong, I like her much, she was very pretty and she really got into her role here (alas the same cannot be said about her performance in "Count Dracula", the movie made prior to "Eugenie"; there she is pretty as a wax doll, but almost as lifeless). But he hardly says anything about her that has not been said before in other interviews. I must say that this absolute focusing on this actress at the expense of all other actors and actresses which contributed to the making of this movie is beyond my understanding. I guess it can only be explained with her untimely death.
