Storyline

Based on the true story of the notorious Marquis de Sade. In 18th century Paris, an innocent beauty's search for her missing sister leads her into the deadly sensuous realm of the infamous Marquis de Sade. Imprisoned for his sordid crimes, the Marquis likewise has the beauty morally trapped... for she must help him complete his banned book of lust, or never learn the fate of her sister. It becomes a test of wills and wit, as the Marquis attempts to convert her to his deviously sexual philosophy. When the Marquis escapes his prison, she must follow him to his remote chateau of sin to finally discover her sister's fate, and to face her own. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Insightful, funny, dark look at the marquis

I was pleasantly surprised by this film. . . it's actually an insightful film about the influences and the character of the Marquis De Sade. Dark Prince examines both the Marquis himself, and the social milieu in which he lived (France during the French Revolution). What Dark Prince reveals is that the real monster during this dark period of French history was not the Marquis himself, but the forces which fought to silence him, i.e. the aristocracy and its supporting forces (the courts and other institutions of the law). I hope I don't make this film sound too dry and analytical, cause it's quite an entertaining, albeit dark and sometimes disturbing, look at the life of the Marquis De Sade. After watching this film, you won't look at the Marquis De Sade in the same light again.
