Audience Reviews for Collections privées (Private Collections)


Two French and one Japanese director contribute to this peculiar compilation of stories as they don't have much relation. Just Jaeckin's opener "Island of the Sirens" takes a surprising turn after a wealthy man shipwrecks on an island populated by four half-naked women, one of whom happens to be the stunning Laura Gemser, and this seeming paradise turns into a nightmare. Shuji Terayama's "The Grass Labyrinth" unfolds slowly but contains many arresting visuals. The resolution was something of a letdown following a collection of very bizarre dream sequences. Finally, Walerian Borowczyk's adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's "L'Armoire" is straightforward and a little too sterile. As far as short film compilations go, you could easily find worse.
