Product Description

"...I am a poor orphan girl..."

Innocent orphan Therese seeks her fortune in a wicked world where no virtue goes unpunished. While she strives to preserve her precious "virtue," Therese finds every inch of her flawless form systematically sullied as she runs afoul of depraved young nobles whose hounds have a taste for human female flesh; a surgeon with a scalpel in one hand and a whip in the other; men of the cloth who keep their female flock shorn and branded with a red hot iron; and a Count whose concubines must give him their very blood! Will Therese finally learn "how delicious it is to be a whore?"

Director Claude Pierson's adaptation of the Marquis de Sade's catalog of hedonistic horrors stars Marco Perrin (ARMY OF SHADOWS), the lovely Alice Arno (FEMALE VAMPIRE) and her real-life sister Chantal Broquet (GOLDEN TEMPLE AMAZONS). This scandalous spectacle has been widely censored, banned, and virtually unseen in the United States - until now, as JUSTINE DE SADE arrives fully restored and uncut on DVD for the first time ever!

I picked this up because I really enjoyed this story by the Marquis de Sade. Given how brutal the story is, I was very surprised that someone actually went out and made a movie. I confess that curiosity really got the best of me and I had to see how faithful they were to the story. I am pleased to announce that on that level the movie is pretty accurate, though I think some people will be disappointed in a good portion of how this is presented. Let me explain...

Okay, a lot of people associate Sade with sadism and other deviant sexual perversions. I think a lot of people read Sade and focus on these particular points, so naturally I think many were expecting an overly explicit movie depicting horrors in a very hardcore fashion. The whipping scenes are in there, just not as drawn out as in the book. However, if you read Sade you get a clear picture that it's not all about the perverse, it's about philosophy. A repellent philosophy that is supposed to go against the norm, to prove that concepts such as the relativity of evil can be conjured up by someone. While his tales may appeal to our violent or possessive/dominant side, I think the main point was to detail what is the major difference between concepts of vice and virtue. I think Justine illustrates this question very well.

There is a vast amount of nudity in this film, specifically when it comes to the women. Actually, most of the men keep their clothes on and basically keep their robes on. For the scenes that require it, they simply lift their robes in such a fashion that keeps things hidden and use the girls' body to hide anything. I know some people are disappointed now. I thought Arno did a pretty good job in this, but she was a little overly complacent in my opinion.

This film just misses hitting the mark in so many ways. There are the whipping scenes which are good...but the sex scenes are weak. Especially when the monks begin to rape the victim, they wear cloaks over themselves so you see absolutely nothing. The women are hot, especially the star of the film, Alice Arno. The background classical music is especially grand and makes the whole film appear to be more elegant than one would expect from this subject matter.
The dialog is tame compared to what they "should have been saying" while they were abusing these women. I would have liked to see more realistic pain and suffering...especially when you consider this is a Marquis DeSade film!

All in all, it was quite entertaining for Capt. Freaky. And I do recommend watching it if you get an opportunity. There are moments when your girlfriend may 'dampen her shorts'....and if so, 'go for it' with her while you can! There are no guarantee's that what you are looking at will get any better in future sequences, when you are watching this French farce.

The plot of "Justine De Sade" follows the storyline of the notorious Marquis's novel fairly closely. However, that is not necessarily an asset, because, like the book, the movie is rather repetitious. The virtuous heroine continually escapes from the castle of a sadistic nobleman, only to wander into another castle of another sadistic nobleman, where essentially the same things happen to her. Twice, she helps a male victim of robbers, only to have the man she has rescued victimize her. You'd think she would learn.The only unique episode involves a convent full of horny monks.

Also, some scenes are unnecessarily gruesome. Still Alice Arno is beautiful, as are the other girls who share her ordeals, and you see all of all of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extreme film, only for fans of exploitation cinema. August 24, 2013
I agree with the other two reviews. This film could be a lot better. The direction by Claude Pierson is very flat, static and boring. The same thing goes for the performance of Alice Arno. They don't have the dynamism or the drama required for this film. If this movie was directed by Radley Metzger or Norifumi Suzuki or Teruo Ishii, it would have been a masterpeace. The story is so powerful and shocking. If you are new to exploitation films, i suggest to start with older films like "Camille 2000" (by Radley Metzger) or "Venus In Furs"(by Massimo Dallamano). 4 stars.
