Fotogallerie für Salome       - Insgesamt 4 Fotos.

Princess Salome is both beautiful and strange. She despises the men around her and those who follow her with lecherous eyes. Only the captive prophet Jokanaan exercises a fascination upon her. The holy man is young, ascetic and aloof; he is, above all, unlike anybody and anything else she has known. But after Jokanaan curses Salome and her lustful advances, she vows terrible vengeance. When her stepfather Herod wishes to see her dance, promising to fulfil any wish, she seizes her opportunity. Salome claims the head of Jokanaan, to be served on a silver platter. She kisses the corpse. Herod orders Salome’s death.
