The film was rejected for a UK cinema certificate by the BBFC in 1976 and only passed in 1981 after 4 minutes 47 secs of cuts with heavy edits made to a woman being bound and whipped, shots of abrasions after a man is whipped and subsequently probed with a needle between his buttocks, and a scene where a male client has his genitals nailed to a plank of wood and his nipples pierced. The cuts were fully waived for a UK 18 DVD certificate in 2003. See more »
Before I saw this film I was warned that the film contains quite a few explicit sexual ideas and images but I have to say that I found the film to be a beautiful romantic .It isn't a conventional romance ,rather extreme if I dare to say,but nevertheless you can easily identify yourself with some of the scenes.Me personally would categorise this film as an Atmospheric Romantic.quite self-explanatory!
