Middle part of Cavani's German Trilogy
11 November 2002 | by (Kielce, Poland) – See all my reviews

This is the second part of The German Trilogy directed by Liliana Cavani (the last one is "Berlin Affair"). In "Night Porter" she described connection between perversion and fascism. This time Cavani described life of Friedrich Nietzsche - great, German philosopher, who declared "Death of God" and wrote such famous books as "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" and "Beyond Good and Evil". Film focused on love, bisexsual triangle between Nietzsche (Bergman's actor Erland Josephson),his friend Paul Ree (Powell)and Lou Salome (Sanda). Like in "Night Porter" film is full of strong, violent sequences (homosexual rape, scatology etc.) but in the other hand it contains the main ideas of Nietzsche philosophy, clearly transformed into feministic discourse (woman as Superman beyond Good and Evil). Recommended for intellectuals with nerves of iron.
