(zeitgeist films) Release Date: Director: Jan Svankmajer Cast: , , , , , , , , Plot: In nineteenth-century France 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 surrealistic lunatic asylum where the patients have complete freedom and the staff are locked up behind bars. Described by Svankmajer himself in a prologue to the film as a "philosophical horror film," "Lunacy" combines live action and stop-motion, sex and violence, grand guignol terror and gallows humor, and a lot of animated meat.
