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]."

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
