This movie is a Masterpiece by any standards and in any genre/category you put it. I am a big fan of all the great directors: Orson Welles, Stanley Kubrick, Luis Bunuel, Ingmar Bergman.........!!! Venus in Furs, directed by Massimo Dallamano is as good as anything from all those amazing filmakers!! Visually it is a stunning film with superb photography, excellent cinematography, tremendous direction and it features the gorgeous Laura Antonelli in her best role ever. Moreover, the music is brilliant and has a very strong presence throughout the whole movie. The transfer by Shameless is also excellent. Venus In Furs, is an original and shocking film that has to be seen, adored, and appreciated. One of the best ever in erotic-cult-cinema.
