Erotique Effectif
28 January 2013 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I suppose it was a hasty step of mine to watch the final film of Jean Rollin, since I had watched only two of the auteur's films (Fascination and Requiem pour un vampire Requiem for a Vampire). Anyway, I was quite intrigued to check out his newer works and it seemed to be inevitable. In either event, I can say that Le masque de la Méduse is quite a unique film, with its own atmosphere and it really feels like the ultimate film of Rollin (somewhere in the middle of the film Rollin even appears by himself, reflecting on his past works). As for its structure, it is rather uneven, which can be one of the features of Rollin's films. With a myth of Meduse as a central point of the film, in its third part Le masque... turns into a erotic lesbian story. And quite picturesque and fascinating story it is, despite all of its irrelevance and out-of-placeness, which can be seen as another feature of Rollin's. That sequence was far more pleasant to watch than the one about the ugly Medusa, played by the director's wife (her only cinema appearance, by the way). However, the scenes with Le Collectionneur also added some points to my overall rating.

The black girl has a really beautiful and sexy body.
