Sade

Movie: Sade
Director: BenoƮt Jacquot
Produced by: Aliceleo, Canal Plus, Cofimage 11, TF1 Films
Released By: Ocean Film
MPAA Rating:

Daniel Auteuil stars as the infamous Marquis de Sade, who at the beginning of Sade, is serving a sentence in Paris’ grim Saint Lazarde prison. The year is 1794, and Sade is being persecuted for his steadfast atheism, which runs counter to the beliefs of Robespierre, France’s terrifying revolutionary leader. The Marquis is granted something of a reprieve when he is transferred — courtesy of his mistress Sensible — to Picpus, a former convent that now serves as the equivalent of a luxury prison. Although Picpus is not without its own guillotine and mass grave, Sade is more concerned with the blossoming Emilie. Meanwhile, Sensible, who has a son who calls Sade “Papa,” is forced to share the bed of her own protector, Fournier, a moody lout who hates Sade and works for none other than Robespierre.
