As far as questionable actions on set go, this film perhaps sets the bar for ‘why the f*ck?!’
Filmed in the mid 1980’s, T. F. Mous was intent on sharing a story about torture and other messed up things. The film was set during World War II and depicted an alleged true story; perhaps the film was a little too harrowing.
One scene involving a collection of rats being set alight took realism to a whole new level when the act was actually committed for the cameras.
Feeling that his film was not ‘true’ enough, Mous’ scene involving a dead child being placed on a table was also ‘real’. The person had died days before and was used as a prop to fulfil some kind of purpose; i’m just not sure what the purpose was.
In a society where films are banned for minor infractions, it makes me wonder how this one slipped through the net.
