Director: Just Jaeckin
Produced by: S.N. Prodis, Yang Film
Released By:
MPAA Rating: NC17

Based on the best-selling novel by Dominique Aury, this erotic tale of sexual dominance and submission was directed by Just Jaeckin, who was following his success as the creator of another softcore erotic film, Emmanuelle. French fashion photographer O is spirited away by her boyfriend Rene to a retreat where she is imprisoned by a jailer, Pierre, whose job is to beat her when she is disobedient. O is outfitted in garb that makes her sexually available to a variety of anonymous partners, the entire episode designed to prove Rene’s love for and possession of O. Pierre’s task is to break her spirit and make her submissive, but he does not entirely succeed. Returned to Paris, O resumes her life with Rene, their relationship strengthened by the experience. Rene jeopardizes their future, however, by attempting to “give” O to his stepbrother, Sir Stephen, who begins to fall in love with his new prize. After the early 1980s explosion in the video rental market, the film was followed by a sequel, Histoire d’O: Chapitre 2.
