Another High Quality Screener by Graf Orlok ([email protected])
If you appreciate such high quality realeases, please send me an email.
Let me know in case that you want a high quality preview of some particular movie.

Here are some details of the process used to create this high quality
realease. The video has been spatially and temporally processed to remove
scratchs and glitches present in the original source then coded from the
YUV 4:2:0 video stream using the latest build of x264. The source material
presents very challeging scenes including an opening sequence with a vanishing
point fast movement, throughall high dynamic range lighting (intense
highlights and deep shadows) as well as several scenes shot through a
softning lenses, which render the details very hard to capture and
preserve. The sound has been processed in order to keep a distortion free envelop
in particular on the high pitch passages of the female singer. This will
give you a theatrical like experience (owners of multi speaker systems
are recomended to use only 2 speakers).
The following options were made in order to keep the quality
of the original film:


Video Stream:
* MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) High Profile (x264 core:47 svn-531)
* Bitrate: 2000 Kbps (2pass VBR)
* Resolution: 688x480 @ 25fps Anamorphic (1376x480 Full resolution)
* Custom JVT standard compliant HVS optimised quantisation matrix


Audio stream:
* MPEG-4 Advanced Audio Coder (MPEG4-AAC) with Main Profile
* Bitrate: 180 Kbps Variable Bit Rate coding
* Bandwidth: 24000 Hz per channel
* Signal Processing: Temporal Noise Shaping,

Description:

In a strange, secluded chateau, a woman know only as O (Corinne Clery)
is introduced to sadomasochism by her lover: he whips her, chains her,
and watches her make love to and beat up others. In the process of
"proving her love" for him, she gives up everything- even agreeing to be
branded -- to provide him with pleasure. This adaptation of Pauline
Reage's best-selling erotic novel was directed by Just Jaecklin.

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073115/
User Rating: 5.3/10 (764 Votes)





About the source DVD:

Year: 1975 (film), 2002 (DVD-PAL)
Format: 16:9
Audio: Dolbi Digital Stereo 2.0, Original Version French Soundtrack
Runtime: 1h 38m
Rating: NC-17 (MPAA)

The Story of O is presented in a Widescreen transfer (approx 2.35:1) and
the result is nothing short of a revelation. When one considers the age
and obvious budgetary limitations of this flick, it turns out to be
nothing short of a minor miracle that the film should look this good on
DVD. Grain is practically non-existent and there is barely even a hint
of print damage to be found. Colors are fairly sharp and vibrant,
unfortunately The Story of O suffers from that dreaded "soft focus"
look, which I'm sure was an artistic choice made by the filmmaker and is
in no way a representation of a troubled transfer. Overall, the film
looks simply fantastic.

A Dolby Digital 2.0 stream on the disc contains the original soundtrack
in mono in the best fidelity available to date.




The Movie:

A beautiful nude brunette, leather cuffs around her wrists, is secured
in an elaborately furnished chamber, her arms suspended over her head
and arching her torso and straining her upper arms. Another woman, with
blonde hair, is setting to her with a thin flexible bamboo cane. The
fury on the blonde's face and the writhing and screaming of the brunette
indicate the severity of the blows and snaps on the pale flesh of the
"victim's" body.

If the idea of this scenario doesn't turn you on, then you will have no
interest in The Story of O.

O's story began as a novel published in France in 1954. Histoire d'O
(technically Story of O) eventually came out from Maurice Girodias's
Olympia Press, which had also birthed the debut of The Ginger Man and
Lolita. Credited to the pseudonymous Pauline Rée, the book tells the
story of a woman named O who is unexpectedly sent to a place called The
Chateau in the Parisian suburb of Roissy by her lover RenéThere she is
trained in the arts of submission, whipped, chained in dungeons, and
assailed by numerous men. In the book, she is violated by a succession
of larger anal dildos to prepare her for nether invasions for the men
who crave her. The training over, she is released to Reného, in an odd
turn of events, gives her away to an older perv named Sir Stephen, who
brands her and who gives her a labial ring. Taken to a party where she
is naked but for an owl's mask and led about by a chain attached to the
ring, O finds a strange peace in her mindless submission to Sir Stephen.

Eventually published in America by Grove Press, the book was something
of an underground hit, and inspired the similar three-part Sleeping
Beauty fantasies of Anne Rice, also originally published under a
pseudonym. There was eventually a much harsher "sequel" called Return to
the Chateau, which was really a deleted, variant last chapter from the
original with some additional material that recounted how the author
came to write the book (as a lure to ensnare a married lover whom she
feared was about to stray), and then as a separate volume a previously
published interview with Rée was reprinted as a book. The rest was
silence. Meanwhile, Histoire d'O has never gone out of print, and has
been translated into at least 24 languages. It is certainly one of the
most internationally popular French books ever published, and may be the
first popular erotic novel written by a woman.

If Pauline Rée was a woman, that is. Speculation as to the identity of
the author raged for years, and included such candidates as Andréalraux,
Raymond Queneau, and even Paris Review publisher George Plimpton. The
only female suspect of note was Catherine Robbe-Grillet, who was known
to be interested in similar games with her husband Alain Robbe-Grillet,
and who herself wrote a couple of S&M novels under the name Jean de
Berg. But most secrets are born to be sussed out. British journalist
John de St. Jorre, while doing some research for his 1994 book Venus
Bound, a history of the Olympia Press, learned that the actual author
was one Dominique Aury, a translator and editor who later died in May
1998, and whose life story is detailed in a London Times obit. Whether
she was personally interested in the games played in her books is at
present unknown.

The Story of O has been adapted a surprising number of times. Kenneth
Anger helmed an unfinished black and white movie version for a private
client in Paris in 1961, apparently drawing for his visual scheme on the
same photo spread from a 1936 issue of the magazine Paris that
influenced Aury years earlier. There was a 10-hour movie version made in
Brazil in 1995, and a very loose adaptation of the sequel, called Fruits
of Passion, made with Klaus Kinski in 1981. The latest version is a
low-budget indie film called The Story of O: Untold Pleasures, directed
by Phil Leirness in 2001 and making its debut at the third annual New
York S&M Film Festival. The story is also popular in other media. There
is a multi-part comic strip drawn by Guido Crepax which has its fans,
and S&M photographer and editor Doris Kloster has released a version of
the book illustrated with her photographs.

But the best-known cinematic version of the story is Just Jaeckin's
adaptation from 1974 (a film that was for a long time banned in
Britain). Jaeckin was a fashion photographer turned director who had
made an international name for himself by starting the Emmanuelle
series, back in the day when softcore adult movies had some currency in
mainstream cinemas.

Jaeckin's adaptation is mostly faithful to the source novel, and
benefits from taste in dér, costuming, music, and photography, a feeling
of discretion toward the material (which might frustrate hardcore
buffs), an effective ad campaign that was based on a two-tone image of a
woman kneeling (which seemed to promise a lot), and the casting of
Corinne Clery in the lead.

Knowing and innocent at the same time, Clery is excellent in a difficult
and easily risible role. One just can't say enough about how good she is
in the part, and she is one of the most beautiful actresses the cinema
couldn't figure out what to do with. Her best moment comes when a young
lover smitten with her is lured to Sir Stephen's only to find her in
bondage and bearing the whip marks of a recent session, driving him from
the house shattered. Clery's panting expression, mixing agony and
defiance, with her sweaty locks framing her face, is unique. Clery's
real name is Corinna Piccolo, and she had a modest cinematic career
after this film.

Filling out the cast is an astonishingly young and skinny Udo Kier as
Renéand the late Anthony Steel as Sir Stephen. Laure Moutoussamy plays
Norah, Sir Stephen's black maid, but nothing is done with her
tantalizing presence.

The appeal of O is based on one's appetite for seeing women whipped and
humiliated (though I would argue that male viewers can just as easily
identify with O). The film came out just before it was impossible to
mount as elaborate a recreation of the film's themes. After that, there
was the onset of feminist studies in colleges and the battles over
political "correctness," from which O is and always was a renegade. Not
until there are departments of S&M Studies down the hall from "queer"
studies in our schools will films such as O be taken seriously, but
until then it can be welcomed as a truly hot video in the privacy of
one's own home.
