Kitty Schmidt è nel '39 la tenutaria di un aristocratico bordello di Berlino. Allo scoppio delle ostilità, il giovane tenente delle SS Wallemberg costringe Kitty a cambiare domicilio e ad assumere un gruppo di prostitute di rigorosa fede nazista che sono state educate a riempire di Eros il riposo dei guerrieri per ottenerne, dopo lo stordimento dei sensi, compromettenti confessioni. Le delazioni delle prostitute sono accompagnate da registrazioni fatte nei sotterranei dello stesso stabile. Margherita, borghese ribelle amata dallo stesso Wallemberg, scopre la situazione quando Hans Reiter - un capitano pilota di cui lei si è innamorata - viene fatto impiccare. Margherita si confida con Kitty sbalordita e inorridita, e le due donne si rivolgono al napoletano Dino che le aiuta nella vendetta. Wallemberg viene fatto cadere da Margherita nella stessa trappola da lui inventata e viene ucciso immediatamente.

BLU RAY RELEASE: One of the more professional films of the genre, Tinto Brass gives a credible, even somewhat restrained, feel to the subject. Some of the female nudity is, apart from its obvious beauty, tantalising without being leering or excessive - although, if memory serves correct, I didn't quite understand why they were seemingly portrayed as dominant over the selected captured men they were to have sex with. Atypical of the majority of films of this type, picture quality on this BD is crisp, clear and with excellent colour balance - well done the distributor for letting the original camerawork shine through. The extras include an interesting interview with the Director speaking in English, and some tantalising trailers of other releases - the film concerning a nunnery looked, how shall we say, quite appealing. Would I consider buying further films directed by Tinto Brass? Yes! An enjoyable film if you enjoy this subject but, despite the hype, this shows little to be shocked about in the 'naughties (2000s) which is why I give it four rather than five stars. A harder edge to the film would have secured full marks.

The first surprise is to see Ingrid Thulin (Return from the Ashes; Four Horseman of the Apocalypse) in such an erotic Nazi nightclub drama. There is much full frontal male nudity, racial propaganda ("Jesus Christ was blonde haired and blue eyed" the Nazi doctor proclaimed). The pig slaughtering sequence is not for the squeamish. Helmut Berger is perfectly cast as the (what appears to be) potentially bisexual central male character (judging by his love of extravagant Nazi uniforms). Women are selected for their political National Socialist purity and their potential to be whores and spies for the Party. They are tested in a scene of balletic choreography; with 20 women encountering 20 men of equal Aryan purity. The story itself? The Salon is ordered to close. A new venue is opened. The reason? Watch the film! If you are not offended by the Nazi stuff then this is an essay in simple decadence.

High production value Nazisploitation film from bootymeister Tinto Brass.If you've seen Caligula , even the trimmed version , you'll know what to expect from this tale of the S.S. recruiting nazi women to work in a brothel for soldiers where the bedrooms are bugged to find out what the soldiers really think about the war whilst enjoying general debauchery (though Caligula didn't have the electronic surveillance,just the nutters and the general debauchery).An excellent camp fun poke at the odious nazi S.S. hierarchy and the shocking banality of evil . On a lower brow note the brothel cabaret is great (think "Cabaret" with nudity) and the overall sleaze is fantastic;Tinto even works in a love/death/revenge story.Brilliant.

The two star rating concerns the terrible blu-ray transfer:
Image clarity and color stability are inferior to the Region 2 DVD I own.
However, the sound of the blu-ray edition is markedly improved.
To the film itself, I give 4.5 stars:
Based on the historical fact of a high-class Berlin brothel that was
controlled by the SD, director Tinto Brass created a provoking and
disturbing essay on the corrupting, degrading, and de-humanizing effect
of absolute power over people.
As he explains in an interview about the film, you cannot comment on
extreme situations, without being extreme in your imagery.
The slaughterhouse scene is pivotal in understanding what the film
says about Fascism: Partly visible, and spattered with blood, is the infamous
concentration camp motto "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work sets you free).
Then there's the boudoir scene where an SS prostitute indulges the
perversions of the powerful elite, while images of Leni Riefenstahl's
Nazi paean "Triumph des Willens" (1935) are projected on the walls
and over the girl's naked body.
Triumph Of The Will (DVD) 2010
And there's the scene with the Jewish boy and his parents who visit an aquarium,
although proscribed by the Nuremberg Laws.
The boy accidentally drops his wind-up toy at the feet of a bevy of
Bund Deutscher Madel (Hitler Youth)girls. The leading girl, staring hatefully
at the tearful eyes of the boy, steps on his toy.
The film's superb production design by Ken Adam of "Barry Lyndon" fame
captures the decadent, Art Nouveau ambience of 1930's Germany,
and the cold,inhuman aesthetic of Nazi design.

This explicit tale of BDSM sex, power and violence is very much enhanced by the director's cut - which heightens the erotic the content just to the right level. This WWII story of the increasingly decadent and debauched Reich is very well told in the haunting Salon Kitty. The period 1940's eroticism is convincing and perhaps at times, under-stated, and too brief - yet, this makes the movie even classier. Our fevered imagination could easily convince us that we've actually seen more than actually portrayed on film.
