Walerian Borowczyk's first explicitly erotic feature, Immoral Tales presents a veritable cavalcade of depravity: cosmic fellatio, transcendental masturbation, blood-drenched lesbianism and papal incest. It tells four stories, each delving back further in time, as if to suggest that the same issues recur constantly throughout human civilization, whether involving notorious historical figures like Lucrezia Borgia and Erzsébet Báthory, or present-day teenagers. Capitalising on the relaxation of censorship laws, Immoral Tales would transform Borowczyk's image from brilliant but obscure avant-garde artist to one of Europe's most confrontational filmmakers when it came to trampling on sexual taboos.

Press Quotes

draws on the influence of Pasolini and Ken Russell in its mischievous attempt to titillate

     —The Guardian

Immoral Tales takes Borowczyk's celebrated eye for erotic representation about as far as it can go

     —Time Out

visually stunning


This isn’t just a sordid French movie as Borowczyk has a lot to say about society (and how some things haven’t changed), sexuality, religion, and, yes, immoral behavior. Borowczyk’s cinematic offerings are never boring.
