The Marquise de Sade's notorious novel has been transposed and updated to 1944. The scene is Salo, in northern Italy, when Mussolini is briefly freed from Italian partisans by Nazi forces. In a remote chateau, four powerful and prominent men, leaders of the local fascist mechanism, host a group of kidnapped young men and women, expressing their ultimate desires as the world crumbles around them. Four aging courtesans relate stories of their carnal pasts, which are then acted out with the "guests" of the party. By exercising their power to degrade and destroy, the fascists illustrate how the misuses of power lead to the murder of innocents.

Pier Paolo Pasolini's disturbing masterpiece.

Trent Douglas on 02.11.2012

Salo is not going to be for everyone, that's for sure. Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered shortly before the original release of the film. Although his death was in no way a retaliation to the film's graphic imagery, what was to follow was a gruelling battle with censors for over 30 years for the re-release of this previously banned shocker. The film begins with four men of power (A president, prime minister, etc.) who marry each other's daughters and decide to steal several young men and women to participate in their cruel and sadistic acts of sexual depravity. The film is set on the cusp of the Nazi invasion in Europe and shows the ugliness of true fascism.
