Pasolini's final and most controversial film has been banned, censored and reviled the world over since it's first release. The film is based on the Marquise de Sade's novel '120 Days of Sodom', with the setting transposed to Mussolini's miniature Fascist Republic of Salo, Italy in 1944. Pasolini observes with unflinching gaze the systematic humiliation and torture of beautiful young boys and girls, herded into a palatial villa by various jaded, sadistic members of the wealthy upper classes. The film's content and imagery is extreme, and it retains the power to shock, repel and distress in this day and age. Originally banned in New Zealand for over 20 years, the debate still continues regarding it's merit, if any... Presented complete and uncut.
