"The Night Porter"
Directed by Liliana Cavani
In Liliana Cavani's scintillating drama, a
concentration camp survivor (Charlotte Rampling) discovers her ex-torturer/lover (Dirk
Bogarde) working as a night porter at a hotel in postwar Vienna. When the couple
attempt to re-create their sadomasochistic relationship, they are stalked by his former SS
comrades. Operatic and disturbing. The Night Porter deftly examines the
cruelty and decadence off Nazi culture. New widescreen digital
transfer. Color. 118 minutes.
