Sadistic French Film: Bold Or Boring?

Liberté, the latest from Catalan director Albert Serra, begins in 1774 with the Duc de Wand (Baptiste Pinteaux) recounting how he witnessed a criminal being publicly drawn and quartered. That anecdote is followed by another bewigged Frenchman ordering two comrades, in a wooded area, to fashion a “balm made of shit and dirt,” which will soon be used on one of their female companions, who will also have urine deposited into her backside while other men ejaculate into her mouth. Charming.
