Lunacy (Sileni)

Rated NR 118 minutes 2006

"Lunacy" is loosely based on two short stories by Edgar Allen Poe and inspired by the works of the Marquis de Sade. In 19th-century France, a young man, Jean Berlot, is plagued by nightmares in which he is dragged off to a madhouse. On the journey back from his mother's funeral, he is invited by a Marquis he meets at lunch to spend the night in his castle. There Berlot witnesses a blasphemous orgy and a "therapeutic" funeral. Berlot tries to flee but the Marquis insists on helping him conquer his fears and takes his guest to a surrealistic lunatic asylum where the patients have complete freedom and the staff are locked up behind bars.
