Bénazéraf was born in Casablanca, Morocco. He moved to France
some years later and became involved in the motion picture business, initially
as a writer. He began directing his own projects in the early sixties,
finding success with arthouse erotica (e.g., SEXUS in 1965). Internationally,
he was praised as "the new Goddard" and critics anxiously reviewed
his cutting-edge projects. Mr Benazeraf fell out of favor in the late
'60s when the new cinematic sexual freedom allowed him to experiment in
more (uncomfortable) depth. His projects turned decidely bizarre
as he concentrated mostly on fringe sexuality. After almost 100 movies,
he retired from the industry in 1999. Mr Benazeraf died in December 2012
at age 90.
For this film - probably
José Bénazéraf's most notorious - he tells the story
of a doctor, his wife and her sister who all live together in a remote
house in a snowy landscape. The sister (played by Jess Franco regular Janine
Reynaud) is a psychologically damaged woman with deep-rooted sex issues.
She begins having erotic fantasies involving her sister and brother-in-law.
These fantasies become wildly sadomasochistic as her madness grows.
