OST : Bilitis (by Francis Lai, 1977)


In 1895 the belgian writer Pierre Louÿs publishes the translation of the work of the Greek poet Bilitis, pupil of Sappho. The book had success for its erotic content; rather, lesbian content. In fact, the poetries were written by the same Louÿs, who invented the character of Bilitis and himself as a translator. In 1955 was formed in San Francisco the first lesbian organizations in USA called itself Daughters of Bilitis. Later, in 1977, one of the most commercially successful and controversial photographers in the world, David Hamilton, made a softcore film called Bilitis. Francis Lai composed its film score and won the César award of French Academy of Cinema as the Best Soundtrack Writer of the year.

It's a charming delight.

She and she!
