Depraved and sickening on the highest level. This is one movie that would be hard for anyone to watch and that's the reason I can't recommend it. However, despite the painfully disgusting things that happen here, the film still has merit. It's purpose is not to exploit for the sake of it (like recent films of this nature), but to be anti-fascist. Whatever you do get out of this movie one thing is for certain, it will leave a lasting impression.

Atypical, Disturbing but Strangely Engaging

Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini paints a deeply disturbing film about Nazis who kidnapped eighteen teenagers from their homes and subjected them in all kinds of physical, sexual and mental embarrassment (”torture” is the more accurate word to be perfectly honest). Out of those eight Nazis four were men (Paolo Bonacelli as The Duke, Giorgio Cataldi as The Bishop, Umbero Paolo Quintavalle as The Magistrate and Aldo Valletti as The President) and four were women (Caterina Boratto, Elsa De Giorgi, Sonia Saviange and Hélčne Surgčre). I have a penchant for films that defy the norm; though this film definitely fits in that category, I must admit that even this one was too much for me. It’s one thing when the audiences are forced to hear stories about the prostitutes’ personal experiences wi...
