Synapse Films has announced the high definition Blu-Ray release of Radley Metzger’s erotic film The Image. Available June 14th, this disc will bring a new look to 70s erotica.
From acclaimed director Radley Metzger (“The Opening of Misty Beethoven,” “Barbara Broadcast”), THE IMAGE (aka “The Punishment of Anne” / “The Mistress and the Slave”) is an explicit study of the sadomasochistic ménage à trois between Jean (Carl Parker from Metzger’s “Score”), his longtime friend Claire, and young, seductive Anne. When Jean discovers the women’s master/slave relationship he finds himself seduced into their perverse sexual games.
Based on Catherine Robbe-Grillet’s classic novel L’Image, this cinema masterpiece tops lists as one of the best erotic films ever made. Beautifully photographed, THE IMAGE will titillate and arouse you like no other film you’ve experienced. Now remastered in high definition, THE IMAGE is presented uncut and uncensored with a newly remixed 5.1 surround soundtrack.
