This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In French with English subtitles. Also known as Benjamin, ou les Mémoires d'un Puceau, or Benjamin, or Memoirs of a Virgin.

Widescreen. If there is one French film that captures the spirit of the 1960s, its innocent pursuit of pleasure and unsullied carefree gaiety, it is surely Michel Deville's Benjamin ou les Mémoires d'un Puceau, a sweetly ironic ode to the delights of free love that is as hard to resist as a night in a Turkish harem. Having lived a sheltered childhood, in which his sole companion was his tutor Camille, Benjamin reaches adolescence with no knowledge of the outside world or the sins and passions that afflict mortal men. Aged 17, he goes to live with his aunt and uncle, libertine aristocrats who inhabit a grand château and have known nothing of his austere life. Here, Benjamin discovers a whole new world, and he finds no shortage of pretty young women who are willing to indoctrinate him into the delights of adulthood. How tragic that the woman he is most attracted to should be the one his uncle has resolved to marry...

With Michèle Morgan, Michel Piccoli, and Catherine Deneuve.
