My Opinion about Quills .
Much too often Sade has been compared to a vulgar pornographer. The man was a libertine whose escapades, more than the books, were at the origin of his contentions with justice. His works are certainly salty, but his writing is rich and gleaming while his books still harbor a philosophical dimension. His work is above all a reflection of the decadence of the nobility and society of his time. The man assumes his perversity, but especially airs out the vices of his peers. He reveals what hides behind the apparent propriety of the nobility and the court. Hence the success of his books with common people and the danger he represents for those in power.
European cinema tries to make one of the last taboos fall in the name of realism, real sex onscreen, and that the puritan and senile American MPAA does not hesitate in cutting the work of major directors, allowing the propagation of lobotomized cinema, the message of Phillip Kaufman is clear: the right to the freedom of expression is an inalienable right regardless of the nature of the contents.
My rate Is :8.40/10 for it.
as i said a thought provoking movie, in the right direction.
