  • Cult Epics Releasing The Flesh


    U.S. label Cult Epics has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of acclaimed director Marco Ferreri's film The Flesh (1991), starring Francesca Dellera, Sergio Castellitto, Philippe Léotard, Farid Chopel, and Petra Reinhardt. The release will be available for purchase on August 8.

    Synopsis: The Flesh a.k.a. La Carne is a romantic black comedy about a divorced piano player named Paolo (Sergio Castellitto) who meets and falls in love with a most beauteously busty woman (bombshell Francesca Dellera), who uses her special powers to turn the man into her slave. The film depicts the oftentimes torturous nature of desire and the power of women in a cinematic work where Francesca becomes a symbolic representation of male desire, with her voluptuous figure and sex appeal being intoxicating to Paolo. While he is completely taken by his desire for Francesca, she eventually gets bored with him and decides to leave. Unfortunately for Francesca, Paolo loves her and has no intention of allowing her to go.

    Francesca Dellera was once named in real-life "the most beautiful woman in the world." She began her career with Tinto Brass' Capriccio, but it was not until her role in La Carne, when premiered at Cannes, that she received international acclaim. Directed by Italian maestro Marco Ferreri, who is best known for such classics as La Grande Bouffe and Dillinger Is Dead, The Flesh is presented by Cult Epics for the first time in high-definition with exclusive bonus features and a limited edition slipcase with newly commissioned art by Gilles Vranckx.
