A Private Collection is not just a ‘documentary’ on antiquated erotic paraphernalia, but rather a description and reflection on predominantly Western sexual mores. Featuring both a commentary and the guiding hands of surrealist writer André Pieyre de Mandiargues, Borowczyk playfully switches between visual media: perverted sculpture, clandestine painting, belle époque photography, a magic lantern show and (in the alternate ‘hard’ version) a cartoon and archival film.
