Walerian Borowczyk s first erotic feature, Immoral Tales tells four stories, each delving back further in time, as if to suggest that the same issues recur constantly throughout human civilization, whether involving notorious historical figures like Lucrezia Borgia and Erzsébet Báthory, or present-day teenagers. Immoral Tales would transform Borowczyk s image from brilliant but obscure avant-garde artist to one of Europe s most confrontational on controversial filmmakers.
