Anatomy of Hell in March
Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of Catherine Breillat's Anatomy of Hell for 28th March 2005 priced at £19.99. Wanting to explore the outer limits of her physicality, a woman (gorgeous ex-model Amira Cesar) walks into a gay bar and slashing her wrists in the toilet, picks up a gay man (internationally known porn star Rocco Siffredi (Romance) and takes him home. Over four days they explore a sexual relationship which takes on an increasingly extreme urgency.
Adapting her own, poetic-polemical novel for the screen, Catherine Breillat (Romance, A Ma Soeur!) takes her trademark dissection of gender-politics and sexual mores to a shocking conclusion, narrating a dark tale of desire, seduction and complicity. Following darkly dramatic movies such as Baise Moi and Irreversible, Anatomy of Hell addresses social taboos in ways that are both disturbing and compelling, a startling reminder of Breillait’s international stature as the commentator of our darker psyche.
Presented in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 Surround audio, bonus features include an interview with Breillat, photo gallery and trailer.
