Critic Reviews for Sade
In Auteil's less dramatic but equally incisive performance, he's a charismatic charmer likely to seduce and conquer.
It's a rosy coming-of-age romp that refuses to see the horror even in the severed heads from the guillotine.
This Sade is hardly a perverse, dangerous libertine and agitator -- which would have made for better drama. He's just a sad aristocrat in tattered finery, and the film seems as deflated as he does.
If you're looking for a smart, nuanced look at de Sade and what might have happened at Picpus, Sade is your film.
Lacks dramatic punch and depth.
