Movie Info

Taina Elg plays a ballerina named Dirce who, butterly fashion, flits from lover to lover. Her latest is a hedonist young man named Dionysius (Pierre Bice). Frivolity veers dangerously towards tragedy, as a "Greek Chorus" of older observers-foremost among these is Akim Tamiroff-look on in bemusement and bewilderment. The basic story of The Bacchantes might seem familiar to first-year students in Greek drama. And well it should: the film is essentially an update of Euripides' +The Bacchae.
