Just before the French Revolution, in a forest outside Berlin, a band of libertines expelled from the court of Louis XVI rendezvous with the legendary German seducer and freethinker, the Duc de Walchen (Helmut Berger), to convince him to join in their mission: the rejection of authority and all moral boundaries. What begins as an evening of strategizing on the proliferation of libertinage, descends into a Sadean night of pansexual one-upmanship. In French, German, and Italian with subtitles. (132 mins)

“Audaciously perverse and amorphous… Conjures a sustained ambiance and eroticism that’s unique to the language of cinema.” – Carson Lund, Slant
“This is both Serra’s most uncompromising film and his most enjoyable..” – Ethan Vestby, The Film Stage
