Czech surrealist director Jan Svankmajer's comic horror tale of a young man who falls under the influence of the Marquis de Sade.
Inspired by the works of de Sade and Edgar Allen Poe, the story follows Jean (Pavel Liska), who is plagued by nightmares in which he is dragged off to a madhouse.
After attending the funeral of his mother, he is invited to dine with a man who claims to be the Marquis de Sade (Jan Tríska), whereupon he soon witnesses various acts of debauchery.
As he attempts to leave, Jean is persuaded by de Sade that he can conquer his fears by attending a nearby lunatic asylum with him.
But as he enters the madhouse, he quickly realises that things are not what they seem...
