More Info:

French film legends Alain Delon (PURPLE NOON, LE SAMOURAI) and Annie Girardot (ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS, THE PIANO TEACHER) star in the 1972 thriller from writer/director Alain Jessua (ARMAGUEDON, THE DOGS) that became a cause célèbre of international cinema. When a career woman (Girardot) checks into the exclusive seaside clinic of a doctor (Delon), famed for his unorthodox rejuvenation treatments, she'll discover a nightmare of bourgeois depravities, medical atrocities, and the eye-popping full-frontal nudity that sparked worldwide headlines. Robert Hirsch (HIVER 54, L'ABBÉ PIERRE), Michel Duchaussoy (MESRINE), and Jeanne Colletin (EMMANUELLE) co-star in this "political allegory fashioned as a horror story"(Time Out). Released in the UK as DOCTOR IN THE NUDE - now scanned uncut in 2K from the original interpositive.
