THE definitive film version of DeSade’s JUSTINE.


Jac Avila has created a definitive film version of the Marquis DeSade’s JUSTINE. The film, based on DeSade’s famous novel about the misfortunes of virtue, is in my opinion true to the book’s spirit and content in a way no other version has ever been.
