From highly acclaimed director Radley Metzger, THE IMAGE (aka THE PUNISHMENT OF ANNE / THE MISTRESS AND THE SLAVE) is a fascinating study of the sadomasochistic relationship between a man, a young girl, and an older woman. Jean (Carl Parker, SCORE), meets his old friend Claire (Marilyn Roberts) at a party and is introduced to the young, seductive Anne (Mary Mendum). Jean discovers the two women have a master/slave relationship and gets seduced into their perverse sexual games. Based on the classic novel "L'Image" from Catherine Robbe-Grillet (under the pseudonym of Jean de Berg), this masterpiece of cinema is hailed by critics as one of the best erotic films ever made. Beautifully photographed with highly explicit imagery and provocative situations, THE IMAGE will titillate, arouse and shock you like no other film you've ever seen. Newly remastered in high definition and created directly from the original 35mm camera negative, this version of THE IMAGE is presented uncut and uncensored with a newly remixed 5.1 surround soundtrack.
Based on the novel L'IMAGE, by Jean De Berg, Radley Metzger's classic piece of underground erotica tells the story of a sadomasochistic relationship between a young girl and an older woman. Keeping the eroticism soft, yet highly stylized, Metzger delivers a refined, dramatic investigation of the complex emotional relationships and power struggles between the slaves and masters of an S&M group.
