The last film by the great Walerian Borowczyk, LOVE RITES is immersed in the terrors of seduction. When Hugo (Mathieu Carrière) meets Myriam (Marina Pierro), a prostitute who picks up her clients on the Paris metro, he soon becomes obsessed with her sultry beauty. He follows her to a flat owned by the mysterious Sara Sand and consummates his passion. Suddenly, he finds the rules of the game have changed as Myriam is now in charge of his body and soul. A macabre love poem from the director of THE BEAST and IMMORAL TALES.

Borowzcyk's pornography is like visual poetry - it enchants, it teases, it destroys. Perhaps if indeed life is a game, it is all about who wins in the end. Brilliant film, glad I watched it, but I will not view it again. Life is not a game.

Very little known film, I'd venture, but a worthy depiction of a subject that could be portrayed in the cinema more often, giving short shrift to commercial pornography.
