Coming Soon: Equation to an Unknown
A handsome young stud rides his motorcycle through a myriad of sexual fantasies, from a soccer game’s locker room to a dreamy and unsettling orgy where the film reaches its melancholic peak.
This undiscovered erotic film is a labyrinth of all-male fantasies whose outstanding beauties always end up fading away while leaving their sensual protagonist dealing with his own loneliness.
The film is directed with absolute grace by the mysterious Dietrich de Velsa (also know as Francis Savel and Frantz Salieri), a former painter who was also the owner and artistic director of one of the first transvestites’ cabaret of Paris, La Grande Eugène. Years later, he collaborated with Joseph Losey on Mr. Klein and Don Giovanni. Equation to an Unknown is Velsa/Savel/Salieri’s only film and stands without a doubt as a masterpiece… maybe the best French gay arthouse porn ever made.
Altered Innocence is releasing the film in a brand-new special edition. This collector’s item includes Remembering the Equation, a video essay about the film by Knife+Heart director Yann Gonzalez; Diary of a Fight, a short film narrated by Alain Delon featuring director Francis Savel (the real name of Dietrich de Velsa); the original 1980 film trailer; a brand-new theatrical trailer and more. The Blu-ray also includes a vintage Jean Daniel Cadinot centerfold poster featuring sexy lead actor Gianfranco Longhi!
