Immortal Tales is a stylish anthology comprised of four erotic vignettes going back through the ages – a contemporary take on sexual initiation, a look at a 19th-century teen who finds ways to amuse herself when locked in her room, the final bloodbath of 17th-century countess Elizabeth Báthory, and an incestuous triangle involving Lucrezia Borgia, her brother, and her father, Pope Alexander VI.

    Walerian Borowczyk is one of the most controversial names in the history of cinema. Inspiring the likes of novelist Angela Carter, filmmakers Terry Gilliam, the Quays brothers, and Jan Švankmajer, Borowczyk’s wild imagination and dark humor has been described as “when Kafka meets Bruñel.” Some call him a genius who crossed from painting, animation, to live-action; some call him a prurient, exploitative, obscene pornographer, like all those that sprung up with the 1970s relaxation of censorship.
