Introduction

Pier Paolo Pasolini’s final work, a controversial transposition of the Marquis de Sade’s novel to Benito Mussolini’s fascist republic of 1944, may prove too strong for some, with its explicit scenes of the humiliation and torture of young men and women by a group of wealthy, sadistic libertines.
