Leopold von Sacher-Masoch
wrote the S&M novel "Venus in Furs" in 1870; it's controversial
success led to his namesake (Masoch) becoming the accepted term
for "Masochism" throughout the world. In late 2013, famed director
Roman Polanski released his version of VENUS
IN FUR causing much interest in the two films that came previously,
this one and Jess Franco's VENUS
IN FURS: BLACK ANGEL.
Director Massimo Dallamano
began his career as a cinematographer, lensing over 40 movies from 1946
(including both Sergio Leone films FISTFUL
OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE) before turning to directing.
He concentrated mostly on thrillers and giallos (WHAT
HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE) during his time as a director. He made
this film in 1968. Mr Dallamano died at age 59 in 1976.
This film follows the perverted passions of a young couple, Severin and
Wanda. He falls victim to unbridled, painful emotions after bouts of voyeurism
watching beautiful Wanda writhing naked among furs. She soon learns that
love is an emotion best unleashed through torture.
