Violation of the Bitch (1978) Spanish 1 Sheet Poster
Despite the title, this erotic dream-like film is more tell than show. For the grubby raincoat brigade, José Ramón Larraz's tale of a bisexual painter coming to grips with her sexuality, while in thrall to a recurring dream of a naked horseman who ravishes her, is, incredibly, rather too tasteful to work. Hoping to take advantage of loosening censorship following the death of General Franco, it's a beautifully shot film by Fernando Arribas - The Blood Spattered Bride (1972), Open Season, And Then There Were None (both 1974) - but ultimately a lesser example of Euro-erotica.
