Arrow Academy tells the STORY OF SIN (review)

After making a name for himself internationally as an aesthete of erotica, Walerian Borowczyk returned to Poland to make STORY OF SIN, a period melodrama in which good girl Ewa falls in lust with a married anthropologist and into spiritual ruin in economically depressed Warsaw.  Although more mainstream than his other works, the film nevertheless explores some of the recurring themes of Borowczyk's erotic ouevre.
