Marquis de Sade's Prospeities of Vice


A decadent Count in 1920's Japan becomes obsessed with the works of the Marquis de Sade. He creates a theatre to show plays adapted from the notorious writers novels, and recruits a variety of thieves, prostitutes and low lives to act out his fantasies onstage for the delight of his rich and decadent friends.


In search of new sensations, the nobleman orders one of the actors, on pain of death, to make love to the noblemanís wife while he watches. Unfortunately, this incursion of real life into his fantasy world will have dire consequences for the count and his coterie.


Full of startling images and with a gripping storyline, this film is a feast for the eyes and mind. This is the first time the film has been released outside of Japan. A classic waiting to be discovered.
