Derided as 'pure pornography with pretensions', and screened to outrage at Cannes in 1976, this is Jancso's reinterpretation of the real-life 'Mayerling affair', in which Crown Prince Rudolph and his mistress committed suicide because they were not allowed to marry.
Featuring much nakedness of both sexes and numerous erotic encounters inside and outside of the castle in which the film is set, it is also a visually striking treatment of the theme of failed rebellion.
