Je Brûle De Partout (I Burn All Over) & Dark Mission
ONE COPY PER CUSTOMER ONLY
Two films by Jess Franco with Brigitte Lahaie :
Dark Mission (1987)
Derek Carpenter, an American secret service agent, is sent to South America by his superiors. His mission: bring down the cartel led by the ruthless Luis Morel. His cover: journalist. His allies: resistance networks, led by the mysterious Moira. On the plane, he meets the beautiful Linda, back home after studying in the United States. The current passes between the young woman and the alleged reporter, who does not yet know that she is the daughter of Luis Morel.
Dark Mission, the mythical production company Eurociné, long
specialized in microbudgets, sees things (a little bigger). The
family SME of Marius and Daniel Lesoeur decided at the turn of the
80s to beef up its game and produce films with international
distribution that could interest viewers around the world. Jess
Franco, a longtime collaborator of Eurociné, is placed at the
controls of this exotic adventure film with a cast that is both
improbable and delightful. Without forgetting to deliver a few
"Franco moments", he conscientiously performs the task.
René Chateau will be impressed with his ability to hide the limits
of the budget and will hire him for the production of Predators of
the Night the following year.
Starring Christopher Lee, Christopher Mitchum, Brigitte Lahaie, Cristina Higueras et Richard Harrison
Je brule de partout (1978)
first meeting between Jess Franco and Brigitte Lahaie!
Lorna and Tom are a couple of small-time touts. In a nightclub, they seduce the young and virgin Jenny for a night of debauchery, then drug her and sell her to a white slavery ring. When they discover that she is the daughter of a billionaire, they decide to ask her for a huge ransom. But now they must rescue Jenny from the fearsome pimp hands that hold her prisoner.
Burning Everywhere is a brutal tale of sex trafficking and revenge
from the perverted mind of Jess Franco, filmed in the picturesque
surroundings of Lisbon, the director's first collaboration with cult
actress Brigitte Lahaie, whom he will reunite with for Predators of
the Night, as well as with one of the most captivating muses, Susan
Hemingway, in the role of Jenny. A cruel drama on the borders of
nightmare and reality, finally unveiled in all its visual beauty,
thanks to a meticulous restoration that corrects the serious
technical problems that have hitherto affected the original negative
of the film.
Starring Brigitte Lahaie, Susan Hemmingway, Jean Ferrere
