A cult erotic drama from the perverse imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Last Year at Marienbad, Trans-Europ-Express), SUCCESSIVE SLIDINGS OF PLEASURE delves into the twisted mind of a young woman (Anicee Alvina) suspected in the stabbing death of her roommate Nora (Olga Georges-Picot, Love and Death). Imprisoned in a convent, the girl's seductive wiles hypnotize the cops and clerics that surround her. All submit to her sexual whims, and are drawn into a sado-masochistic world where fantasy and reality are pleasurably blurred.
This devilishly entertaining trip into deviance is made even more alluring by the special appearances of Jean- Louis Trintigant (Amour), Michael Lonsdale (Moonraker) and Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher).
Directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet
