Rebellion is one thing

But it is always also about the way it is executed. And including male genitals and making it look like they were a mouth which is talking or ejaculating on a camera or making fart sounds is certainly not the right path to follow. This film from almost 50 years ago has zero artistic value and its message is absolutely irrelevant as this film relies on nothing but shock factor. What is especially sad is that this is probably Hellmuth Costard's most known work for these reasons and if something like that applies, you can definitely talk about a failed career. He is obviously long dead, so he will never read it. Costard made this film in his mid-20s and it caused a scandal at a film festival where it was shown. Usually, I am not too big on political correctness, but I would agree with the filmmakers that these repulsive 11 minutes should never be really shown to an audience. I highly not recommend to give this one a watch. The title of this movie is "particularly valuable", but the outcome is the exact opposite. Or with the words of Valerie Cherish: "I don't need to see that."
