    Nucleus films release The Libertine (1968)

    THE LIBERTINE (1968)

    Exploring the sordid adventures and perverted fantasies her late husband kept from her, Mimi (Catherine Spaak, Cat O’Nine Tails, Story of a Cloistered Nun) sets out on a sexual adventure all of her own. Through a series of bold sexual encounters, each one more thrilling than the next, she meets Dr Carlo De Marchi (Jean-Louis Trintignant, Death Laid an Egg, 1968) and discovers love holds even greater adventures. This stylish Sixties Italian sex comedy deftly combines sophisticated eroticism with biting sexual politics that remain as pertinent as ever. Spaak’s third film for director Pasquale Festa Campanile (Hitch Hike) is a beautiful ode to sixties pop culture, free love, and fetish

    An erotic classic little seen since its original release and now presented in both the rarely-seen, sophisticatedly erotic original European cut and the raunchier version edited and released by adult film legend Radley Metzger (Camille 2000, The Opening of Misty Beethoven), The Libertine is a sweet romantic sex comedy with a light S&M twist. Finally on Blu-ray, both versions have been restored from the best available elements and are presented uncut for the first time, complete with extensive brand-new bonus features.

    Sold! Never seen this but the Trovajoli score is one of the iconic groovy lounge soundtracks of the era. If it's even half the film that THE SLAVE was in terms of late 1960s pop art goodness I'll be happy. Great cast as well. Catherine Spaak is stunning.

    Yeah. I've just ordered this. Sounds like something I should own. I loved The Slave, and I love Metzger and love iconic groovey soundtracks and sexy 60's women. Sounds like a win

    First Run Features put this out on DVD a long time ago. It's every bit a groovy as The Slave, but much more lighthearted.
