Didn't get it
Too much historical and cultural subtleties and a lot of surrealism that didn't connect to anything. I have nothing against surrealism, but it did not hold together here, it seemed only to exist for the sake of existing, without deepening the plot or heightening the viewer's experience. I understood the last little bit was out of de Sade's 120 days of Sodom, but other then that I found myself lost in a whole lot of plot devices that seemingly require the viewer to have an understanding of pre-war France.
