Albert Serra Retrospective
- Director: Albert Serra
EN 1774, shortly before the French Revolution, somewhere between Potsdam and Berlin.
Madame de Dumeval, Count Tesis and the Duc de Wand, libertines expelled from the puritanical court of Louis XVI, seek the support of the legendary Duc de Walchen, the German seducer and freethinker, alone in a country where hypocrisy and false virtue reign. Their mission is to export libertinage, a philosophy of enlightenment founded on the rejection of moral boundaries and authority, and, as well, to find a safe place to pursue their errant games, where the quest for pleasure obeys no laws other than those dictated by unfulfilled desires.
