Fascination

1979 / 80min / DCP

DIRECTOR: JEAN ROLLIN

CAST: FRANCA MAï, BRIGITTE LAHAIE, JEAN-MARIE LEMAIRE

A genre unto himself, the Frenchman Rollin was a one-man industry turning out supernaturally-tinged, erotically-charged films connected to the legacy of 1920s surrealism, movies that had the feeling of sad fairy tales. Fascination is one of his best and best-loved, a hypnotic, dream logic-driven period piece set in motion when a thief takes refuge in a château presided over by beautiful Brigitte Lahaie and Franca Maï, a film that begins with abattoir home remedies and leads to swinging aristocrats and swinging scythes.
