Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 07/01/2011
"BLACK MOON is a lovely surrealist fable....Exquisitely photographed by Sven Nykvist with that distinctive, languid, mid-Seventies palette, you have to see it for yourself..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2011
"Malle's insistence on absolute naturalism somehow makes the sights and sounds of BLACK MOON all the more surreal..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Louis Malle meets Lewis Carroll in this bizarre and bewitching trip down the rabbit hole. After skirting the horrors of a mysterious war being waged in the countryside, beautiful young Lily (Cathryn Harrison) takes refuge in a remote farmhouse, where she becomes embroiled in the surreal domestic life of an extremely unconventional family.

Product Description:

In Louis Malle's apocalyptic fantasy BLACK MOON, Lily (Cathryn Harrison, granddaughter of Rex) drives down a lonesome road, and soon finds herself in a alternate world full of non sequiturs and bizarre characters. At times, this looks like a David Lynch film, what with an old woman conversing with a rat, a pack of naked children chasing a pig, a talking unicorn, a strange set of possibly incestuous siblings (one of whom is "underground" film star Joe Dallesandro), and several other warped set pieces. Malle reportedly culled inspiration for the narrative of this film from his own dreams.
