Storyline

A witty and eye-opening tour through Borowczyk's own collection of vintage erotica. Originally intended as part of his 'Contes immoraux', it was released first as a separate short, and is therefore marks the turning-point between Borowczyk's career as a highly-regarded animator and surrealist filmmaker, and his subsequent career in the sexploitation field. Written by Michael Brooke <michael@everyman.demon.co.uk>

Trivia

The more explicit, slightly longer edit, known as 'The Oberhausen Cut', has been edited for it's inclusion on Arrow Films' Camera Obscura box-set to remove a scene of actual bestiality. The following appears at the start of the film 'In order to comply with UK law, part of this alternative version of A Private Collection has been adapted with the full co-operation of Borowczyk's regular collaborator, Dominique Duverge-Segretin'.

A public collection.

Checking the run-times of the 70's shorts by auteur Walerian Borowczyk,I noticed this one was the longest. Having seen all the others,I got set to view the collection.

View on the short:

Originally planned as a segment to his Immoral Tales (1973-also reviewed) work,Walerian Borowczyk gives the audience a eyeful by opening his vast collection of Adult material. Fingering the themes which would appear across his movies, Borowczyk mixes old footage, (some of which has had to be censured) photos and toys with devices that create cheeky animations that cast a light on this private collection.
