The Devils DVD
In seventeenth-century France, Father Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his power to protect the city of Loudun from destruction at the hands of the establishment. Soon, he stands accused of the demonic possession of Sister Jeanne (Vanessa Redgrave), whose erotic obsession with him fuels the hysterical fervour that sweeps through her convent. With its bold and brilliant direction magnificent performances, exquisite Derek Jarman sets and sublimely dissonant score by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, The Devils stands as a profound commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution and the corrupt marriage of church and state. Available on DVD for the first time, The Devils is presented in the original UK 'X' certificate version with a host of new and exciting extra features.
