ROBERT MONELL: My favorite Jess Franco movie poster illustrating his most moving Sade adaptation. Soledad Miranda is both victimizer and victim, the seduced and the seducer, the object of every man's (and some women's) desires. Once again, it's a film about watching cinema as Jess lights a smoke and considers the forbidden in the very first scene. The look on Franco's face in the final scene as he contemplates the lost Eugenie speaks volumes as does the above image. Soledad Miranda's own life was both a triumph and another perfect tragedy...but she lives! Thanks for the image, Jonathan.
