Sylvia Kristel 1970s Collection / Various

WATCH TRAILER

Synopsis:

Cult Epics proudly presents the Sylvia Kristel 1970s Collection, featuring four of the legendary Dutch icon’s most diverse films in new 2K transfers and entirely uncut, for the first time on home video in the United States.

Released in 1975, Alain Robbe-Grillet’s surreal, absurdist sado-masochistic drama Playing with Fire (Le jeu avec le feu) features Sylvia in one of her most challenging roles alongside Jean-Louis Trintignant, Anicée Alvina and her Emmanuelle co-star Christine Boisson. The set’s two Dutch films are co-starring Rutger Hauer, and Sylvia at the peak of her career. Submitted for the 1978 Academy Awards — Best Foreign Film, Wim Verstappen’s Pastorale 1943 is a war drama centered on the Dutch resistance during World War II, and features also the debut of Renée Soutendijk. Painter turned director Paul de Lussanet’s romantic psychological drama Mysteries, based on the world famous novel by the Norwegian nobel prize winner Knut Hamsun and shot by renowned cinematographer Robby Müller, also stars Rita Tushingham and David Rappaport. Filmed and released right after Sylvia became one of the world’s biggest stars as Emmanuelle (1974), Sigi Rothemund’s 1974 film Julia is a German sex comedy drama, with Sylvia as a young boy’s first love, foreshadowing her later U.S. commercial hit Private Lessons.
