The Night Porter 18 rating

Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling star in this controversial story of the profoundly disturbing relationship between a former SS officer a concentration camp survivor.

Drama 1973 119 mins

Director: Liliana Cavani



Set in 1957, Liliana Cavani’s film focuses on Max, a former Nazi SS officer (Dirk Bogarde) who’s been in hiding in Vienna. When he bumps into Lucia (Rampling), a woman he tormented during the War, they are drawn to each other, and renew their sadomasochistic relationship. Provocative and problematic, Cavani’s film explores sexual transgression and dark, compulsive personalities, with an incredible Charlotte Rampling, queen of European arthouse cinema.
