Trincant: [holding up Grandier’s baby as Grandier burns at the stake] Watch, bastard. See how your mother’s honor was avenged.
Ibert: Lucky little bastard! It’s not every day Baby sees Daddy burn to death.
If there is one flick I want to see in 35mm it’s this bastard. The one that put the late Mr. Ken Russell on the map. This film is hyper-stylized, violent, and raw. Banned in some countries, labeled as pornographic in others, this is a near flawless film that will be in your head long after the credits role.
