The story revolves around two objects, a rare set of 18th-century Limoges china, and a 19th century aristocratic portrait. As these items are passed, sold, or stolen from one character to another, a giddy round dance of excess begins to take shape, one which suggests that if history doesn't repeat itself, it certainly rhymes. Co-writer Gerard Brach and director Otar Iosseliani uses a feather-light touch to expose the futility of class and social order, making a bagatelle of the concerns of rich and poor alike.
Travels the globe to show how prostitutes really live and work today. The conclusion to internationally renowned director Michael Glawogger's globalization trilogy, following Megacities (1998) and Workingman's Death (2005), Whores' Glory depicts the skin trade in three economically divergent countries.
This powerful drama, which was an Official Selection at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, stars Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche as a journalist whose existing notions and perceptions about her own sexuality are challenged when she begins investigating student prostitution for an article.

Mondo Macabro does it again, taking us back to 1920's Japan and a count's obsession with the Marquis de Sade. In a word...awesome!
DVD Review PIGS, PIMPS, & PROSTITUTES
If the title of this box set and its Criterion Collection seal of approval aren't enough to entice you, having three integral parts of the Japanese New Wave in one awesome package should be more than enough.
