The Rape of the Sabine Women (1962 film). El Rapto de las Sabinas (English Translation: The Rape of the Sabine Women) is a 1962 historical drama film adaptation of the Roman foundation myth about the abduction of Sabine women by the Romans shortly after the foundation of the city of Rome (probably in the 750s BC). The film was written and directed by Alberto Gout. Lorena Velázquez as "Hersilia". Tere Velázquez as "Rhea Silvia". Wolf Ruvinskis as "Romulus". Luis Induni as "Titus Tacius".
But Ms. Sussman’s Sabine Women is set in the endlessly stylish, initially optimistic 1960s. The Roman warriors are trim young men in shiny suits with narrow lapels; they evoke the secret-agent chic of James Bond but also the deadening conformity of Sloan Wilson’s novel The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit. The women wear French twists, richly patterned mod dresses and big dark glasses that recall those of Jacqueline Kennedy and Maria Callas, rivals in the late ’60s for the affections of Aristotle Onassis. It is Fascist-era style, not International Style.
In this context, the word rape is more closely tied to abduction, as in the act of taking the women, rather than sexually assaulting them. This theme has been revisited throughout antiquity in paintings, sculptures, and literature. Poussin’s work now hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Nicolas Poussin Famous works.
