What a pile of hoooy. The "torrid" sexual relationship were two scenes of what I would describe as rape. Brando's character was a bully and probably drove his wife to suicide. Schriber's character was a weird girl who allowed herself to be objectified. The premise gave support for the myth that women like to be "taken." The fact that she claimed to love him later is just sexist cliche. The whole movie didn't make sense and was about as erotic as watching mushroom grow. Save two hours of your time for something much more worthy, like watching the NY Knicks lose another game.

Not bad, I remember when it first came out. Created quite a stir. Looking at it now it really is a period piece, when Hollywood was trying to be daring and pushing envelope.

This Bernardo Bertolucci film caught me completely off guard. A daring role for Brando, to say the least. He seemed to be enjoying the 'freedom' of it, (after having the constraints of 'The Legion of Decency' censoring some of his work, years earlier, e.g. A Streetcar Named Desire...). The film is depraved, brutish at times, confusing as to why in God's name the young woman Jeanne would keep returning to that... Worthy of a one time viewing for me, anyways. In closing, I now realize that the stereotype that SOME French women don't shave is quite obviously the case here in '72... (No offense intended, French people, simply an observation.)

Movie trailer said this is one of the most important films EVER. I think not.

Silly movie, great score by Oliver Nelson and Leonardo 'Gato' Barbieri

Marlon Brando did not help making it any better. A bizarre movie!

If you're going to see this Bernardo Bertolucci classic, then you should also see his other 2 movies filmed in Paris: The Conformist... and The Dreamers - both movies that I would rate as Very Good.

Paul (to his wife's corpse): "Even if a husband lives 200 hundred f**king years, he'll never discover his wife's true nature. I may be able to understand the secrets of the universe, but... I'll never understand the truth about you. Never."

Jeanne: "What are we doing here?" Paul: "Let's just say we're taking a flying f**k at a rolling donut."
