1774, a few years before the French Revolution, somewhere between Potsdam and Berlin - Madame de Dumeval, the Duke of Tesis and the Duke of Wand, libertines expelled from the Puritan court of Louis XVI, sought the support of the legendary Duke of Walchen, a seducer and free thinker from Germany, alone in a country where hypocrisy and false virtue reigned. Their mission: to export libertinage to Germany, a philosophy of enlightenment based on the rejection of morality and authority but also, and above all, to find a safe place to continue their misguided games. Written by Allocine

User Reviews

One of the very best of 2019.
25 November 2020 | by MovieMn1982See all my reviews

If the Marquis de Sade and Georges Bataille ever got together, banged out a screenplay and co-directed a film, it'd probably look a lot like Albert Serra's LIBERTÉ. An atmospheric and disturbing journey into a night of debauchery with a gang of rim-jobbing, golden-showering, spank-happy libertines, who are apparently on a mission to be the filthiest group of bastards to ever don the powdered wig. One of the best of 2019, and one that I can't recommend to 99.7% of the people I know. Also, I'm going to need to repent and find some brain bleach, pronto.
