Tinto Brass #15 --- I've been wanting to see this forever. I didn't read into it beforehand so I was going in blind. The movie is great. To my surprise, it tells a good and suspenseful story - shocking at parts, satirical at others.
Helmut Berger gives an outstanding performance as Wallenberg. Ingrid Thulin and Teresa Ann Savoy are amazing too. Overall, the cast and acting are perfect. Even everybody's favorite creep, Luciano Rossi, makes an appearance. Of course, he plays the nazi-"doctor".
The score is great too. During the scenes that take place in the "Salon Kitty" a lot of songs are performed. They are sung in English and are upbeat. Classical music appears as well. In contrast to those things, there is very dark piano-based music as well. And I mean really dark.
Great movie and possibly Brass's best work.
