SALÒ O LE 120 GIORNATE DI SODOMA

SALÒ O LE 120 GIORNATE DI SODOMA

During the last days of the Fascist regime, four powerful men (the Duke, Bishop, Magistrate and President) kidnap a group of young men and women. They lock them up in a villa and for 120 days do with them as they please, including subjecting them to violence and torture. The film first screened time after Pasolini’s death and was immediately attacked by censors.

"What is striking, what is powerful in Salò, is the letter. Pasolini has shot his scenes to the letter. [...] Making someone eat excrement? Enucleating an eye? Putting nails in food? Everything is seen. [...] As they say, you will be spared nothing. With this level of rigor, it is no longer the world as depicted by Pasolini that is laid bare, but our gaze."
R. Barthes, Le Monde, June 16, 1976
