The packaging is a little deceptive on this re-release of Alex de Renzy's mid 70's porn production "Femmes de Sade" - this is NOT a 'period piece' as the box art might lead one to believe. Like many of de Renzy's flix this was shot in and around San Francisco and features many familiar scenes from the North Beach tenderloin district. The simple plot line focuses on a big nasty guy (Rocky DeSade) who is just getting out of prison (along with a younger in-mate 'buddy') - they are picked up at the gate of the prison by the young guy's cute GF and they all head off for some freedom and fun, but Rocky's grim personality immediately rears it's ugly head and he beats up his 'friend' and rapes the girl before disappearing into 'the city'. The plot then zeros in on a group of 'free-loving' folks who are essentially hookers and porn shop owners and there are several 'fantasy' sex scenes played out - one is a pretty titillating little 'medical' fantasy, and in another a pizza delivery girl takes on a gang of oily, sweaty workers in a boiler room scenario, while a third 'fantasy' scene features an Asian theme. Rocky finds his way to North Beach and has (really!) violent encounters with a couple of prostitutes - forcing a bottle up one - and leaving them bruised and ticked off. As the word spreads on the street about this giant mean guy the local 'sex worker' crowd decide to teach him a lesson and he is invited to an S&M 'Ball" where Rocky gets his cum-uppance from all those he defiled, and then some! This WAS a pretty rough movie for its' day and some of the scenes still pack a punch. The cast includes several well known 70's vintage porn actors & actresses and, devotees of the genre, may be able to spy additional famous XXX faces in the 'crowd' during the lengthy 'grand finale' at the S&M orgy. Shot on film, this movie has a gritty dark edge to it and provides a fair amount of 'kink' for those that enjoy such. While this is not an overt BDSM flik, de Renzy invokes the 'spirit' of the Marquis deSade and offers up some shocking erotic tableux that certainly have helped to propel the film to cult status among fans of weird 70's porn. Not for the easily offended! - BUT, if you 'enjoy being offended' - then this one is a 'keeper'!
In short, you're not allowed to make adult films that blend explicit sex with violence, among other things. Go ask Rob Black & Lizzie Borden about their jail time served for creating the 2002 video "Forced Entry".
Personally, I consider "Femmes de Sade" one of the best exploitation/adult films of the '70s.
The print used here looks good compared to other adult films released on DVD in the past - in one infamous scene involving a coke bottle, you can actually see blood on the sheets during the aftermath, and it is not as heavily cut as the print released by Alpha Blue Archives (the only good thing about that release was that it retained the original movie poster artwork for the cover instead of the truly bad Historic Erotica artwork.)
But...it is missing about 17 seconds during the sex party at the end. I know, doesn't sound like much, but the clipped scene involves a Dalmatian Dog, and does add to the sordid proceedings. The edit is not noticeable and you wouldn't know it was missing unless you knew it was there.
I still give props to Historic Erotica for releasing the print that they did.
Alex de Renzy's "Femmes de Sade", shot in San Francisco in 1976. A true classic.
