Reel Life: Based on Truth and Lies • Drama
1976 • Italy • Directed by Tinto Brass
From Tinto Brass, the director of CALIGULA, comes his own EXTENDED DIRECTOR S CUT of SALON KITTY. Completely uncensored and presented for the first time in HD, this fully restored wide-screen version finally allows this film's extreme, almost hard-core, content to be seen as originally intended by its director; as well as showcasing the stunning sets of Oscar®-winner Ken Adams (designer of most James Bond films and Kubrick's BARRY LYNDON). Based on a true story, this shockingly controversial film is an unflinching portrayal of the criminal depravity of the Nazi party and the ruthless use of sex to destroy opponents and control the Third Reich. Berlin, 1939, the start of World War II, SS Officer Wallenberg (Helmut Berger) is instructed to train twenty of the most beautiful staunch young Nazi women as prostitutes and put them to work in the opulent brothel of Madame Kitty (Ingrid Thulin).
