An infamous 1975 film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini
, based on the book "The 120 Days of Sodom" by the Marquis de Sade
. In the story, four fascist libertines
in Italy round up 9 teenage boys
and 9 teenage girls
, and subject them to 120 days of physical, mental, and sexual torture. Interestingly, the film is divided into four segments that loosely parallel Dante Alighieri
: the Anteinferno, the Circle of Manias, the Circle of Shit
, and the Circle of Blood. Considered one of the most graphic and disturbing films of all time.
