The most famous dominatrix in France creates sadomasochist "Ceremonies" in her chateau. Catherine Robbe-Grillet, age 84, defies the relations between power and submission, sensuality and physical pain.
A delightful film that had me smiling to myself for much of its running time. Who would have thought that the Swiss could take themselves so "unseriously". Made to look like a political thriller with all its intrigues and political power plays, at its heart, it's superb and hugely entertaining satire about the small Alpine Nation, its past, its values and its fears. The very first few minutes left me a bit confused and made me wonder whether this was another of those "weird" films where you never quite know what's really going on. But those first few moments were forgotten very quickly, as the film picked up pace and got better and better. Elena Panova is great in her role, and I especially enjoyed her versions of the Swiss folk songs. "Luegid vo Baerg und Tal" with a Russian accent: There's something I never thought I'd ever hear. But it totally works. The surprise ending is brilliant, to say the least. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and I wish there were more Swiss movies of this kind.
