Plot & Details
In this visually stunning drama, the many faces of extreme eroticism are explored. In four episodes, beginning in the present, dreamy glimpses into the minds of unknown and famous erotic villains are screened without ever becoming pornographic. In the first episode, a girl accedes to her cousin's wish for ritualized oral sex. In the second, a very religious young woman has an erotic awakening which she cannot separate from her religion. In the third, the notorious Countess Bathory murders young girls in order to gain eternal youth by bathing in their blood; in the final episode, the daughter of the Pope, Lucrezia Borgia, has elaborate quasi-liturgical sex with male relatives.
