Director Albert Serra has always been interested in reaching back to history's most decadent and imaginative chapters. After two films dedicated to the life of Louis XIV, he's now turned his attention towards Marquis De Sade. But this is not a biopic on the author-philosopher himself. Instead, two like-minded libertines, banished by the King are brought to the stage. They travel to Germany, where they believe they can practice their freethinking away and seek support from the legendary Duc de Walchen.
