Audience Reviews for Marquis
Trapped in the Bastille, the Marquis de Sade nonetheless engages in political intrigue, writes S&M porn, and engages in long talks with his penis---which talks back. All of the characters wear animal masks while explicitly re-enacting some of the Maquis' greatest hits, making this intelligent French film into a disturbing cross between MEET THE FEEBLES and SALO.
It's a visually grotesque and yet symbolic film, it's not difficult to see what the director intended for the viewers to understand. The script was beautifully crafted, costumes were superb. Loved the metaphors of the animal masks which described the characters well. The film is truly a masterpiece that covered all of the genres.
This VULGAR puppet show take on the Marquis De Sade Overstays what little welcome it had to start with, although it is a must for fans of the film Quills
