The ultimate German madness
28 October 1999 | by (Dordrecht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The movie is about a German director who want to make a remake of Pier Paolo Pasolini's Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (1975) (Salo, or The 120 Days of Sodom). Needless to say, something doesn't workout the way he planned. Suicide is just one of the minor problems.

Compared to one earlier movie of Christoph Schlingensief: Terror 2000 - Intensivstation Deutschland (1992-) this movie is even more over the top. I didn't think it was possible since Terror 2000 is complete madness. If you're not offended by just about anything (Nazi-jokes, Suicide-jokes etc etc) this is the movie to see. If you thing you might be offended, you will! > > > >
