Directed by Henri Xhonneux & Roland Topor
An audacious rendering
of the political, social and sexual manners of the ancien regime and the class division and social disruption that produced the French Revolution. Adapted from the
writings of the Marquis de Sade, Henri Xhonneux and Roland Topor's elegantly witty film
uses elaborate puppets in human form to act out erotic and sexual decadence.
"Elegantly naughty with wry, intellectual satire. The film plays out all manner of
human desire" (J. Hoberman). French with English subtitles.
