The Many Sins of Walerian Borowczyk

Synopsis

The film takes place before, during and immediately after the engagement party of Dr. Henry Jekyll and Miss Fanny Osborne…

Our take

Robert Louis Stevenson’s sinister modern fairy tale of respectable surfaces and beastly underbellies is the perfect playground for the moral inquiry and surreal excess Walerian Borowczyk seeks. Riffing on the source with frenzied abandon, it also stars the great Udo Kier as the two-faced Doctor!
