Black Moon
Louis Malle, 1975 (100 min.)

Combining an intriguing mixture of realism and fantasy, French New Wave director Louis Malle spins an "Alice in Wonderland" yarn made possible by a timeless, placeless world.  Balthus' provocative paintings of young girls are evoked in the child-like, sexualized woman who travels between reality, imagination and a mesmerizing unicorn.
