Still banned in several countries to this day, Pasolini’s uncompromising adaptation of the Marquis de Sade’s infamous The 120 Days of Sodom remains unrivalled in its power to provoke and horrify. Transposing the novel’s 18th century setting to Italy in 1943, the story concerns a group of wealthy libertines who kidnap a group of teenage boys and girls, subjecting them to an onslaught of physical and mental torture.
