When I refer to this film as "animal porn" I do not mean that in a derogatory way. I caught an on-campus screening of this film in the mid-1970's when I was an undergraduate at the University of Southern California, and it must be something special if it can stay in my mind for more than 35 years. I remember it as a beautifully composed film both in its photography and music. You just need to be warned in advance that if you are offended by graphic images of sexual intercourse and childbirth then you need to skip this film even if you can find a way to see it.
For now I suppose you need to add it to your "My Movies" wish list and catch a cable showing or be in the loop when we reach that state of post-Enlightenment such that the film will be available on DVD.
