Temptress | YUYU YUYU


Latvia (2012) | 120 minutes

Director: Yevgeny Pashkevich

Sexual temptation, betrayal and a precipitous fall intertwine to frame the lush and hallucinogenic stories of an immortal temptress over three eras. The official submission for Oscar consideration from Latvia, this labyrinthine tale spins off from the Talmudic myth of Lilith, the soulless demoness who was Adam’s and spurned first mate. As her story moves through the ages, a string of susceptible suitors eager to feed her appetite, all fall prey to the original femme fatale.
