Olivier Smolders' languidly sensual black-and-white treatment of the late 18th century erotic text from the Marquis De Sade juxtaposes the graphic dialogue between a set of male and female characters (describing the sexual schooling of a young maiden while extolling the moral virtues of libertinism) with a semi-nude montage of women coolly returning the camera's gaze, footage overlapping with the setting of Smolders' RAVISSEMENTS, released the same year, and several solemn men, evoking yet other characters in the story as well as (perhaps multiple sides of) De Sade in his prison cell. - Robert Avila
