Overview

124 min (Spain)  3 April 1969 (Italy)

Library synopsis: [En] The girl chosen to play the title role is beautiful Romina Power who says of Justine: “This girl is violated almost from the cradle. Her every Samaritan move ends up by her being interferred with by depraved men. The story of Justine is recognised in many literary circles as being a work of art and is said to be De Sade’s own unhappy experiences”. De Sade’s story follows the life of a young and naive girl who proves to be a treasure chest for the debauched emotions hidden in society. Her basic honesty prevents her from hurting the feelings of others and consequently she submits to their foul and peculiar lust in a daily life that always manages to flow one incident to another. It is hard to image the workings of a mind that is satisfied from the creation of such bestial cruelties afforded to such a sweet and tender maiden. If the film can portray the feelings and depth of De Sade’s writing, then this film is not to be recommended to the squeamish. Written by Eric Marks
