Liberté, Albert Serra, France, 2019, 132'
Presentation: Albert Serra.
1774, a few years before the French Revolution, between Potsdam and Berlin.
Madame de Dumeval, the Duke of Thesis and the Duke of Wand, libertines expelled from the Puritan court of Louis XVI, go in search of the legendary Duke of Walchen, a seductive and free German thinker, alone in a country where hypocrisy and false virtues reign. Their mission: to export debauchery, a philosophy of enlightenment based on the rejection of morals and authority, but also, and above all, to find a safe place to continue their malicious games. Will the novices of a neighboring convent be carried away by this dark night where only the law of insatiable desire reigns?
