An international co-production made on location along the Brittany coastline Rapture is one of the most remarkable coming of-age films ever made and with its vivid atmosphere and emotional acuity is one of the most striking and neglected studio projects of the 1960s. Three years after she shot to prominence in the classic Sundays and Cybele Patricia Gozzi gives an extraordinary performance as the young girl whose isolated existence under her overbearing father Melvyn Douglas (Ninotchka). Is turned on its head with the sudden arrival of a seductive fugitive from... the law Dean Stockwell (Quantum Leap). With a supporting cast including Gunnel Lindblom Sylvia Kay (Wake in Fright BBC TV's Just Good Friends) and Peter Sallis (Last of the Summer Wine) stunningly expressive black and white Cinemascope visuals and an exquisite score by Georges Delerue Rapture is an astonishing rediscovery presented for the first time on home video in the UK in a new high-definition restoration.

Melvyn Douglas and Patricia Gozzi star in this coming-of-age drama from director John Guillermin. Agnes (Gozzi) lives a lonely, sheltered life on the family farm in Brittany with her father Frederick (Douglas). When fugitive Joseph (Dean Stockwell) shows up at the farm seeking refuge, he quickly forms a special bond with young Agnes. As Frederick expresses his disapproval of the match, Joseph tries to convince Agnes that all of her troubles would disappear if she just ran away from her overbearing father.
