Today we have a Japanese poster for French director Jean Bastia’s erotic drama …et mourir de désir, starring Alain Tissier, Karen Olsen, and Maria Mancini as people caught in a nasty love triangle that leads to betrayal, blackmail and murder. The film never had a release outside Europe and Japan, which means it’s way too obscure to track down a copy, but we thought the poster was worth sharing anyway. Bastia, who directed the fairly well known western Dynamite Jack in 1961, was born in 1919, which means …et mourir de désir, which premiered in Paris today in 1974, came quite late in his career. In fact it was his last movie.
