Liberté Blu-ray
Drama / Historical



Liberté

France 1774. Expelled from the puritanical court of Louis XVI, a group of aristocratic libertines pursue an ideal of enlightenment through the rejection of conventional morality. At a time when hypocrisy and false virtue reign, they seek a place to indulge their quest for pleasure, inhabiting a libidinous twilight world dedicated to realising unfulfilled desires.

Albert Serra’s explicit and opulent exploration of the limits of the erotic imagination is one of the most radical and subversive works of recent times, making Liberté a singular cinematic experience.

 

2019 Cannes Film Festival /  Winner: Un Certain Regard - Special Jury Prize 

A poem to the night.” Albert Serra

Audaciously perverse and amorphous... Liberté conjures a sustained ambiance and eroticism that’s unique to the language of cinema.” Slant magazine

Liberté more than lives up to its title, suggesting that a truly free cinema is one that still believes in the possibility of subversion.” Dennis Lim, ArtForum

An uncompromising howl in the wind against the notions of good taste... This is both Serra’s most uncompromising film and his most enjoyable.”  The Film Stage
