Salo, or The 120 Days of Sodom
SALÒ o le centoventi giornate di Sodoma
Dir. Pier Paolo Pasolini
Italy-France 1975 | Colour | 111 mins | Cert 18 | Drama
Cast: Paolo Bonacelli, Girgio Cataldi, Uberto P. Quintavalle
Pier Paolo Pasolini's final and most shocking film has been banned, censored and reviled the world over since its first release in 1975. The film's content and imagery is extreme and it retains the power to shock, repel and distress even today. A brutal allegory based on the novel 120 Days of Sodom by the Marquis de Sade, the film is a cinematic milestone - culturally significant, politically vital and visually stunning.
