The audience for animated erotica is a peculiar one to begin with, so I can only imagine who’ll show up to a forty-three-year old watercolor rape revenge fantasy with a plot conveyed largely via psychedelic freak-folk soundtrack. Jean and Jeanne want to get married and seek the blessing of the local lord, a move that sets off a chain of Satanic sex and violence that intensifies and intensifies and then intensifies some more. The trippy film was hand-colored and at various points veers away from animation altogether, panning slowly over mostly still frames. It’ll give you something to talk about, anyway.
