This story of the Marquis de Sade relies more on erotic scenes of female nudity than the leather whips, chains, and pain he reportedly enjoyed in real life. The Marquis (Keir Dullea) enjoys a romp with four naked females as they tear up the house. He dives into a pile of writhing, naked bodies, pouring wine over them and spanking them as he laughs maniacally. Renee (Anna Massey) and Anne (Senta Berger) are just two of the delectable beauties that tickle his fancy. The only truly erotic scene in this X rated feature is when he pours jelly over a woman's bosom and licks it off.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Not quite as silly as it looks and sounds, but it comes very close."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Essentially the film is Caligula set 1700 years later, complete with washed-out photography and no-name actresses willing to show off their, ahem, talents."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"It was pure torture sitting through this dull version of the life of Marquis De Sade."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A self-indulgent excuse to employ what now looks like very dated psychedelic 1960s filmmaking techniques."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"This awful attempt to do a movie biography of the Marquis de Sade falls flat, with embarrassing performances from all of the actors."
