Comedic Brilliance
23 March 2012 | by Pan32See all my reviews

Pierre Zucca directs this transcendent piece of loopiness adapted together with Pierre Klossowski from his novel of the same name ( and its companion the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes) that includes the philosopher himself as Octave and his wife the formidable Denise Morin- Sinclaire, one of the few survivors of the infamous SS women's prison at Ravensbrück, as Roberte playing in the title role, which, one assumes. is integral to K.'s Sadeian instructed philosophy, but without English subs, I had to rely on my knowledge of the English translation of the novels to follow the films action, which usefully featured the most engaging scenes. The score is intermittent and brief but equally inspired. This is a wrongly neglected masterpiece,that with subs would become a cult favorite, shown at midnight on, say, the Feast of the Assumption.
