Plot – Spoilers:
Six regular people set about crafting elaborate props for their fairly unique fetishy fantasies. A lonely submissive single man irl secretly wishes to be dominant while wearing a rooster hat. A policeman gets off to tingly and ticklish sensations. A domina fantasizes about tormenting her neighbor. A mailwoman has a thing for bread pellets. A newsreader who feels neglected by her husband desires her toes to be sucked by fish. A pornstore owner creates a mechanical wonder to masturbate him as he watches the news.

Conspirators of Pleasure is a silent movie with comedic music and some of Svankmajer’s renowned animation when the different characters’ fantasies finally come to life. If ever a movie did justice to the category ‘Misc Paraphilias’, this is it.

    Not one of Svankmajer’s better works. Surprisingly boring.

    I really loved this movie, so not agreeing w/ KevinF.
    I liked each intrigues of the characters (thought some was not great, like the middle-aged Domina and the Mailwomen), but I think it’s still a great movie to watch.
    Some scene were surreal, I loved the Rooster scenes,,,,
    Sure, the film is silent (I understand that some ppl would found this boring :^p), the end had me a bit confused thought,,,,

    But still, still loved it and I recommend !! >:^]

    I do not like the movie, but it is a good movie.

    The ending can be confusing (which is understandable for the lack of dialogue), but if you pay good attention you will see that everything comes full circle in the end.

    Spoilers:
    Albeit ambiguous, I can only deduce the two neighbors (the single man and domina) wanted to dominate each other but somehow their kinks crossed the threshold of reality which caused the domina’s death. So at the end, the man recreates the domina’s fantasy.
