Plot – Spoilers:
Marquis is one of the strangest movies you’ll ever see with all the characters, humans in animal form.
Loosely set around the time the Marquis de Sade was imprisoned, he struggles to retain his sanity as he’s systemically denied writing material and ink. He keeps it together by constantly being in conversation with Colin – his cock. In some ways, his cock is his writing muse but also someone who’s desperate for his own independent identity. With a face that’s more human than Marquis, it’s a weird but brilliant satirical take on ‘thinking with your cock.’
There are other hilarious and tragically comical characters around the Marquis to capture a period of great political change in French history.
