BELLADONNA OF SADNESS

This lost masterpiece of Japanese animation never received a proper theatrical release in the U.S. A swirling, psychedelic blend of tarot-card imagery and erotic Art Nouveau style, this transgressive head trip tells of an innocent young woman who makes a pact with the Devil (voiced by Tatsuya Nakadai of Ran) after she is raped by a local lord on her wedding night. Director Eiichi Yamamoto previously directed TV versions of Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion.No one under 18 admitted! Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 93 min. www.cineliciouspics.com/belladonna-of-sadness/
