It's hard to find a more cult film than this free, very free adaptation of the writings and life of the Marquis de Sade. This demented project bears the pen and aura of Roland Topor, and the touch of his collaborator Henri Xhonneux, already at work on the Téléchat series. Marquis uses the same anthropomorphic animal characters with animatronic faces, this time in the service of a highly licentious tale, both in its predominance of the sexual and its description of a corrupt society full of hypocritical manipulators, where the Divine Marquis and his talking sex ultimately appear as the least troubled characters. The splendor of the obscene dialogues is matched by visions of another world, where animation and live action overlap.
