Goofs

In an announcement that the Germans troops were near to Paris (June 1940) it is also stated that the French government had decreed the total mobilization of the reserves. Actually the mobilization of the French armed forces had been decreed in September 1939, when the war started. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Elena Martin: Paris, January 6th, 1940. Again, she wrote all night. She stretched, looked out at the rising sun, and bundled up against the early morning chill. As if drawn by some invisible force, she headed off across the awakening city.

Tinto Brass meets Story of 'O'
22 June 2002 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

I don't think you can pack more into a hour and a half movie, without it exploding. This film has politics, romance, sexual awakening, war, art, anti-semitism and lots of sexy gorgeous nude woman (especially, if you like red heads) in a wonderfully photographed "epic". The only thing wrong was that Audie England should have kept her mouth shut. Her face and body are sheer cinematic poetry, but she just did not seem to be able to say any words with any conviction.

If you prefer your sex during the rise of fascism in a romance country, this film is a must have! Of course, you must see the un-rated version. The sex does really contribute to the plot.

P.S. Don't waste your time on Titanic! This movie is light-years ahead of it.
