“Eroticism, sex, is one of the most moral parts of life. Eroticism does not kill, exterminate, encourage evil, lead to crime. On the contrary, it makes people gentler, brings joy, gives fulfillment, leads to selfless pleasure.”

    LOVE RITES

    WALERIAN BOROWCZYK France, 1987

    Walerian Borowczyk’s final film is relatively more sexually restrained than the dizzyingly pink heights of his late 60s and 70s cinema. Had he mellowed with age? Nonetheless, Boro’s adaptation of André Pieyre de Mandiargues’s novel still plunges into contemporary sexual mores with gleeful abandon.
