Lunacy by Jan Švankmajer( Visual )

in Czech and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The film is loosely based on two short stories by Edgar Allen Poe and inspired by the works of the Marquis de Sade. In nineteenth-century France (albeit one full of deliberate anachronisms) a young man, Jean Berlot, is plagued by nightmares in which he is dragged off to a madhouse. On the journey back from his mother's funeral he is invited by a Marquis he meets at lunch to spend the night in his castle. There Berlot witnesses a blasphemous orgy and a 'therapeutic' funeral. Berlot tries to flee but the Marquis insists on helping him conquer his fears and takes his guest to a nearby lunatic asylum where the patients have complete freedom and the staff are locked up behind bars. Described by Svankmajer as a "philosophical horror film," Lunacy combines live action and stop-motion, sex and violence, grand guignol terror and gallows humour, and a lot of animated meat
