About This Project

France 1980, 95 min, colour, French  dir Walerian Borowczyk sc Walerian Borowczyk, Anton Giulio Majano, Frank Wedekind, Géza von Radványi dp Michael Steinke mus Giancarlo Chiaramello cast Anne Bennent, Michele Placido, Jean-Jacques Delbo

Based on the Lulu plays by Frank Wedekind (which formed the basis for G.W. Pabst’s Pandora’s Box), Borowczyk presents a terse, stripped-back account of the eponymous anti-heroine. Filmed in a series of stylized sets designed by the director himself, Lulu is as cool as an erotic fantasy played out inside a doll’s house. Anne Bennent puts her stamp on the role immortalized by Louise Brooks, and Udo Kier memorably turns up as Jack the Ripper.
