The Art of Arousal

There's no point in serious argument about whether or not The Image is pornography, because it clearly is. Though it may not be considered hardcore pornography in the sense that there's no penetration shown on-screen, the sexual content is more explicit and shocking than any porn you've ever seen, to the point of going beyond arousing and into repulsive.

But The Image is also unmistakably art, and it's one of the few films that managed to merge the two successfully, much more so than the soft erotic dramas which were a dime a dozen in the 70's and 80's. Rather than just romanticizing sex, The Image is a disturbing and intelligent film about domination and sexual psychology, and in between the sex scenes you'll find surprising amounts of character development and a tight script (excluding the god-awful narration, which I could really do without); add to that excellent acting from the three leads - especially Rebecca Brooke, who truly sells her performance with her shockingly convincing face and body language (not to mention how gorgeous and sensual she is), and gorgeous cinematography which juxtaposes the brutal violence of the acts with the pastoral and serene French backdrops, to a truly eerie and enticing result.

It goes without saying that The Image isn't for everyone. It succeeds as pornography - being enticing and arousing even for those with barely even a fleeting whimsical interest in S&M - but it's also very disturbing and difficult to watch. But if you can stomach it, it's definitely recommended.

Pornography Disguised in Art

In Paris, the writer Jean (Carl Parker) meets his former affair, Claire (Marilyn Roberts), in a party. Claire is with a girlfriend, the model Anne (Mary Mendum), and invites Jean to meet them on the next day. Claire offers Anne, who is her humiliated slave, to Jean and the trio begins a sadomasochist relationship with kinky sex.

I bought the DVD "The Image" expecting to see an erotic art movie. However, it is actually porn with fellatio, urination, bondage and humiliation without any story disguised in art. My concept of art is very different from what I have just seen in this movie. My vote is one (awful).

Title (Brazil): "A Imagem" ("The Image")
I have Synapse's June 2011 DVD release and what a job they've done. Ionly wish they could do the same for another Rebecca Brooke (MaryMendum) film from the same year Max Pécas 'Felicia' (1975)

Previous reviewers have touched on many aspects of this classic, Idon't need to redo that, however I do need to emphasize that the actingby the very hot Marilyn Roberts (Claire) and slave Anne (Brooke akaMendum) is phenomenal. Roberts can do more with her eyes than...welllet's just say this woman can act. Brooke is a luscious slave girl whois absolutely believable, the male lead is nice looking and enjoys hiswork, the poor dear.

This is BDSM, D&s, SM, etc and it is very well done, best I've seen,Metzger is as good as there is. Brooke is the "hottie" but Roberts hasthe heat.

One of the best erotiques I own.
