Storyline

Based on the true story of the notorious Marquis de Sade. In eighteenth century Paris, an innocent beauty's search for her missing sister leads her into the deadly sensuous realm of the infamous Marquis de Sade. Imprisoned for his sordid crimes, the Marquis likewise has the beauty morally trapped. For she must help him complete his banned book of lust, or never learn the fate of her sister. It becomes a test of wills and wit, as the Marquis attempts to convert her to his deviously sexual philosophy. When the Marquis escapes his prison, she must follow him to his remote chateau of sin, to finally discover her sister's fate, and to face her own. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Moves so slow even in 92 minutes it never goes anywhere
14 December 2018 | by imdb-23068See all my reviews

First this movie claims "Based on the true story of the notorious Marquis de Sade." but in fact is pure fiction. Do not expect any historical accuracies. While Nick Mancuso looks like he had a fun time playing the role of the Marquis, much of the cast could have used acting lessons before filming began. Still, there was not much of a role for Mr. Mancuso to play anyway. The story attempts to build but never gets off the ground. The final scene that it does build to is a complete let down. After 92 minutes I felt cheated. The only thing left for some people to watch is for a few glimpses of bare breasts, usually very brief and in dark rooms. I am just glad this movie is over and I can watch something interesting like paint drying on the wall.
