A Very Disturbing Film
This is one of the strangest and disturbing films that I have ever seen. It is set in Northern Italy in 1944, and it makes a good case while fascist Italy was never meant to succeed. Four government officials kidnap 16 young male and female "specimens" and bring them to a palatial estate complete with sadistic guards and servants as well as four middle-aged women who relate sexually arousing stories while the young people are subjected to degrading treatment, and while the fourth woman provides accompaniment on a piano. The stories are taken from the fanatical rantings of Dante and the Marquis De Sade. In the end, after the youths have "served their purpose," they are ritualistically executed. Did I say that this was a disturbing film?
