Storyline

Mme. de St. Ange reads Marquis de Sade's Philosophy in her boudoir and fantasizes about its excessive content. She has sex with Mistival in exchange for permission to take his lovely teenage daughter Eugenie to her vacation island. Eugenie was educated in a convent and sexually inexperienced. When she arrives, she and her step brother and lover, Mirvel seduce her into joining their bizarre sexual role-playing. A party follows, during which Eugenie is drugged and forced to submit to sadomasochistic games directed by Dolmance and his oddly-dressed followers. When she awakens from her stupor, however, Eugenie finds that the games have turned to murder. Written by lament

Better than you'd think
18 November 2002 | by Rob_LinebergerSee all my reviews

Eugenie is a film that shocked 1969 audiences, with interracial kissing, woman-to-woman fondling, and brother-sister sex games. It is beautifully filmed, sublimely acted (within its cult pedigree), and has reams of coolness, which makes it a good bet for modern audiences. If you get bored watching Connery drive his Aston Martin to a romantic rendezvous for some witty repartee, Eugenie will likely bore you. If you prefer graphic to simulated, you might find it lame. But if you can buy into the characters and appreciate the care of the filmmaking, Eugenie is a rewarding, disturbing piece of celluloid. In the interview, Franco states "Of all my films, it is the one I hate the least." If you know Franco and his staggering body of work, that's saying something.
