Extase Film Poster


This 1932 Czech film - which tells the story of an unhappily married young woman who has an affair with a road engineer - became famous for two reasons: it starred the then-unknown Hedy Lamaar (Hedy Kiesler at the time) and it created a huge scandal with its nude scenes. Denounced by the Pope, banned by Hitler and confiscated by US Customs officials, the film was finally widely released in several censored versions.
