For all its invocation of Racine, the play also lacks the great Frenchman's ability to show people torn between passion and duty: Mishima's women all represent a single viewpoint from which, over minutes, they scarcely deviate.
It is not the fault of the excellent Rosamund Pike, who exudes radiant spiritual devotion, that I demurred at Mme de Sade's enthralment to her husband and wanted to giggle when she said that "he has built a back stairway to heaven". Judi Dench is also the perfect embodiment of outraged propriety as the heroine's mother. Frances Barber as a steaming sexpot, Deborah Findlay as a pious baroness and Jenny Galloway as a surly servant all do admirable work.
And no praise is too high for Christopher Oram, Neil Austin and Adam Cork for their design, respectively, of set, lighting and sound. As offstage events, such as political uprisings in Marseille, are described, so we see them ripplingly reflected on the set's marble walls and aurally evoked.

The Marquis de Sade's The 120 Days of Sodom: Revelling in the Natural Law of Libertinage
Marquis de Sade, from whom the words "sadism", "sadistic" are derived, is definitely one of them. Saw the movie Quill.
This book add to that fascination. It tries to depict how, disturbingly, humans are capable to deceive and damage. Oct 11, Bjorn rated it it was ok Shelves: brazil.
S. Korea lifts ban on French erotic novel by de Sade
In the immortal words of Sonic Youth, "Satan is boring". As is de Sade when you cut him down to an extended argument about how people try to free themselves from God. And fuck GK Chesterton.
