Playing with Fire / Alain Robbe-Grillet

WATCH TRAILER

Synopsis

Playing with Fire is the aesthetic culmination of Robbe-Grillet’s cinematic ritual of seduction.” – Marcus Stiglegger

Grossly affluent banker Georges de Saxe (Philippe Noiret) keeps his daughter, Carolina (Anicée Alvina), hidden in a mysterious house of perversion after a kidnapping attempt snags a young woman who resembles her. Carolina soon finds herself trapped in a deliberately confused existence in the house of sexual exploitation and imprisonment. At the heart of it all seems to be an enigmatic man named Franz (Jean-Louis Trintignant), who will either be Carolina’s killer or savior.

Alain Robbe-Grillet’s surreal, absurdist sado-masochistic drama Playing with Fire (Le jeu ave le feu) was a commercial success due to to the appearance of Emmanuelle star Sylvia Kristel – in one of her most challenging roles. Cult Epics presents Playing with Fire on Blu-ray in a 2K transfer with new bonus features including an audio commentary by film critic Tim Lucas + 8-page booklet (Blu-ray).
