Synopsis

Pornography is there to give you an erection. Erotica is there to give you emotions.” – Tinto Brass

P.O. BOX TINTO BRASS
Italian director Tinto Brass is known as the absolute master of erotica, creator of works like All Ladies Do It, Frivolous Lola and Paprika. His gift at perfectly portraying the beauty of the female body has made him celebrated by both men and women. And it is precisely the latter category that sends him boxes full of fan letters.
P.O. Box Tinto Brass is a collection of those letters, photos and videos of female sexual fantasies. This erotic comedy by the Maestro himself, with a score by Riz Ortolani, contains a succession of exciting, downright sensational and sometimes even shocking material. Previously unreleased in the US, Cult Epics presents the Uncut version in a 4K transfer with both the original Italian language track and the English dub. This 2 Disc Limited Edition of 2000 Copies includes exclusively the Documentary; IsTintoBrass, and a 48-page Photo book of unpublished images from the Tinto Brass Archives by right-hand set photographer Gianfranco Salis.

ISTINTOBRASS
In this documentary Tinto Brass talks candidly about his long-life career, from his earliest anarchistic, innovative and experimental arthouse films (Whoever Works is Lost, The Howl, Attraction) to the decidedly derriere-obsessed fetishism of his later work. Starting as an assistant to Roberto Rossellini, Henri Langlois and Joris Ivens, he soon found himself at the very beginning of the Nouvelle Vague, discussing cinema with auteurs such as Bresson, Godard, and Truffaut. The biography brings to light an almost forgotten chapter of cinema history, thanks to the analyses of Marco Muller and Gianni Canova, who trace the beginnings on up to the films on power, such as the Nazi-brothel melodrama of Salon Kitty and the infamous Caligula, which was enormously successful with the public. To this very day, Brass remains an icon of erotic pleasure and voyeurism, and his story is revealed in the tales of Gigi Proietti, Serena Grandi, Helen Mirren, Franco Nero and Sir Ken Adam, among others.
