The Devils 1971 UNCUT DVD
It's the uncut version that restores most of the cut footage that was removed when the film was released, including the never before seen “Rape of Christ” sequence.
In seventeenth-century France, a promiscuous and divisive local priest, Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his powers to protect the city of Loudun from destruction at the hands of the establishment. Soon, he stands accused of the demonic possession of Sister Jeanne (Vanessa Redgrave), whose erotic obsession with him fuels the hysterical fervour that sweeps through the convent.
With its bold and brilliant direction by Ken Russell, magnificent performances by Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave, exquisite Derek Jarman sets and sublimely dissonant score by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, THE DEVILS stands as a profound and sincere commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution and the corrupt marriage of church and state.
