Full Film:Black Moon 1975 Starring Joe Dallesandro

Black Moon is a 1975 French/West German avant-garde film directed by Louis Malle. The film stars Cathryn Harrison, Joe Dallesandro, Therese Giehse, and Alexandra Stewart. Shown at the 1975 New York Film Festival, it was distributed in the United States by 20th Century Fox.

The surreal narrative pivots around Lily a confused teenager (Cathryn Harrison) who witnesses a war between the sexes and finds herself involved in numerous dream-like situations at a country estate. An underlying subtext offers a commentary on the Women's Movement of the 1970s.
Lily arrives at a country estate where a number of surreal/unusual events take place. Naked children are used to round up sheep. On the estate are a number of people including a man tending to the upkeep of the grounds Joe Dallesandro called Lily. He does not speak but somehow communicates through touch. His sister (Alexandra Stewart) who also helps on the estate with rounding up sheep is also called Lily (they are credited at the end of the film as Brother Lily and Sister Lily). Therese Giehse plays a bedridden woman (credited as Old Lady) who communicates with a large rat, and also operates a ham radio next to her bed. She is demanding. This includes when she is hungry she seeks milk and is breastfed by sister Lily, and later by Lily.
Lily pursues a unicorn around the estate. It later turns up in Old Lady's room. Lily prepares to breastfeed it and the film ends.
The film is dedicated to Therese Giehse who died shortly after the end of the film.
Despite the film's location in France the film's dialogue is in English.
