Question by Deirdre R: Where can I find the French 1970’s film adaptation of Ambrose Bierce’s short story “The Coup de Grace”?
I saw it on an old VHS short film collection about 8 years ago, looking to see if I can find it on the internet to use for a class, but I can’t find it anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find it?
Answer by Susie Perry
Is this the right film?:
“A young Russian woman (Magarethe von Trotta) becomes involved with a sexually repressed Prussian soldier. When the soldier refuses her, she spirals into a psychosexual depression and begins sleeping with numerous men while championing the cause of Bolshevik revolutionaries in the days immediately following the fall of the Czar,” produced in 1976.
If so, it is available on Netflix. If you were looking for free and/or streaming, I can’t help. Sorry.
