Sweet Ecstasy

Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
1962
Rating:
R
Sweet Ecstasy is one of the first French films directed by Max Pecas to gain a wide audience in the United States after its release. Featuring a young Elke (Elke Summer) in just her second role in a Pecas film and her first using her own first name, the film serves up all the things that American films were not allowed to during that time period: sex, violence, and decadence. Elke is a free spirit that commingles with a group of jet-setters that have chosen the French Riviera as their playground. A chance encounter with one of the newer members of the group, Olivier (Christian Pezey), who did not know what the group's lifestyle was like, leaves Elke questioning her own values for the first time. Meanwhile, her friends become angry with Olivier after he starts an onboard fire. Young tempers being tender, the mistake becomes the launch pad for a mobbing and subsequent showdown between Oliver and Elke's friends. Also released as Sweet Violence in certain markets, the film first appeared in 1962.moreless
