Description

This passionate and intense film strayed into deviant territory that fell foul of the BBFC. It's only now, with this DVD, that the film comes to us - nearly uncut. María Barranco won the Goya Award as Best Supporting Actress for her role as a transsexual prostitute. Film Notes Billy Chainsaw provides notes for this DVD which will prove helpful to newcomers of Luna's work. Chainsaw argues whether this is just an arty porn film, or a rather more important movie than that. The film was cut in the UK by two minutes and 55 seconds by the BBFC. These cuts include an S&M orgy at a gay club being shortened, a man sexually touching Lulu, and a sex scene; these scenes were restored for the 2002 DVD release. In addition to these cuts an opening scene in which Lulu is baptised as a baby was cut as the child's genitalia is exposed to the camera; this shot is considered to be in breach of the Protection of Children Act 1978. The 2002 UK DVD required 1:15 of cuts for the baptism scene; a new title sequence was used instead. Before "Golden Balls" and "Jamón, Jamón", Bigas Luna directed the highly charged "The Ages of Lulu" about the sexual awakening of a young girl.

On one nocturnal expedition they join up with a transgender prostitute called Ely who becomes their friend. The couple have a daughter, Ines. Pablo convinces Lulú to participate blindfolded in a threesome; when Lulú discovers that the third person was Marcelo, her brother, she leaves Pablo in disgust, taking their daughter with her. However, her own desire to play increasingly dangerous sex games now comes to consume her. Stars: Francesca Neri, Óscar Ladoire, María Barranco, Fernando Guillén Cuervo, Rosana Pastor, Javier Bardem, Juan Graell The film is an adaptation of the international best-selling novel of the same name written by Almudena Grandes. Ángela Molina, who was originally cast in the lead role, withdrew when she learned how explicit the sex scenes were to be. Picture Warm, rich colours - typical of Luna's style - fill the screen but the picture remains detailed. Flesh tones look natural and there are enough acres of it to judge from! Additional Extra Features Also on the DVD are trailers for the film, cast and crew filmographies, and a trailer gallery for other Metro Tartan films.

Ages of Lulu" at the BBFC The original BBFC notes of cuts needed for the old video release of this film are presented here for you to see. Virtually all the cuts are now restored except an opening second or two that fall foul of obscene imagery of children. All the adult S&M is there though! The Ages of Lulu ( Spanish: Las edades de Lulú) is a 1990 Spanish erotic drama film written and directed by Bigas Luna and starring Francesca Neri, Óscar Ladoire, María Barranco and Javier Bardem. It is based on the novel of the same name by Almudena Grandes. The film is about the title character's life and sexual awakening in Madrid, which leads to her involvement in increasingly dangerous sexual experimentation. After becoming aroused watching a gay porn movie, she seeks out gay men and pays them to join in orgies, or watch them having sex. Unable to pay enough to satisfy her desires, she meets a pimp called Remy who runs a secret S&M club. Ely tries to warn Lulú that Remy is dangerous, but Lulú ignores her, so Ely goes to warn Pablo. Remy tells Lulú to go to a club, where she is tied up by Jimmy, a gay man she had previously paid for sex.
