Performers, Cast and Crew:
|Directed by||Gustav Machaty|
Rating: 2.5/5 -- In the end, ECSTASY wants to have it both ways -- drugs are celebrated at the beginning of the film, and condemned -- or at least the crime connected with them is - by the end.
At the Movies (Australia)
Rating: 1/5 -- The movie's low-level chat about uppers (boy, you wouldn't give this movie a nickel for its small talk) does little to peddle Welsh's undoubted brilliance. Full Review
Rating: 1/5 -- Only those still clubbing on ecstasy are likely to enjoy this but then they love everything. Full Review
Daily Express (UK)
A crass and shallow exploration of a potentially interesting topic, which makes for one downer of a cinematic trip. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/5 -- One gets the feeling this director doesn't think his target audience is all that smart. Full Review
Sydney Morning Herald
Rating: 2/5 -- Not so much chemical romance as serious downer, it all seems so old. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Ecstasy is to ecstasy what Trainspotting was to heroin. Different times, different drugs, but the Scotland-set story of addiction and redemption is pretty much the same. Full Review
When a young bride discovers her older husband's impotence, she seeks attention elsewhere. Hedy Lamarr appears in the nude and in a state of sexual passion in this film that caused an international scandal and made her a star. Incredible enlightened and progressive in its portrayal of sexuality (particularly female sexuality), ECSTASY has become a landmark of European cinema.
In this romantic drama filled with erotic imagery, a young bride (played by Hedy Lamarr) realizes she is unhappy after marrying a much older man. As a result, she begins an affair with a young man and becomes torn between him and her husband ... with tragic results.
- While this film was banned by the United States Treasury Department for revealing too much of Hedy Lamarr (Hedy Kiesler), this Czech film was also banned in Germany because Hedy Lamarr was Jewish. Defending the film and the nude scene, American distributor Jacques Koerpel was quoted as saying "Evil to him who evil thinks," when he heard of the decision to barr its release. The film was originally titled "Symphony of Love."
