Beast, The


aka: La Bete
France 1975, 94 minutes
Dir. Walerian Borowczyk
In English, French with English subtitles
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Cult / Controversy, Sexploitation, Animal Amok, Black Comedy

Topics: Bad Taste.


Aroview: This unsexy, frequently hilarious art-porn parable from the easily aroused dir. of IMMORAL TALES consists of a hairy sasquatch in heat chasing – and eventually copulating – with a nubile virgin in the woods.

In short, it's a hardcore variation on BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (complete with questionable animal suit and a hysterically oversized sexual organ), masquerading as an anti-bourgeois treatise, that’s also very, very European. Keyword for pervs: bestiality.
