Installed within the gilded cage of marriage, she discovers he expresses more affection for his dogs than for her.

Ireland, 1920. Damien O'Donovan is leaving for London for an internship, until the dreaded Black and Tans attack his hurling mates, killing one for not speaking English.

Damien is a purist, an idealist, and therefore marked for a tragic destiny, while Teddy is a fatefully pragmatic politician. These differences between the brothers propel the film through its terrible final act, as the signing of Anglo-Irish Treaty establishes the Irish Free State, splits the Republican movement, and unleashes the Irish Civil War

In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial
