  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Sweet-movie 5410.jpg

Still hungry (errrr, wrong choice of words) for more after Pink Flamingos and Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom? Enter Dusan Makavejev's Sweet Movie, a very avant-garde 1974 film.

The film charts the... quirky journeys of two women. One woman, Miss Canada (Carole Laure), representing modern commodity culture, wins a virginity auction (she's such a virgin, her vagina literally glows!) and is betrothed to eminent milk tycoon/millionaire Mr. Kapital. On their wedding night, however, he drops his pants to reveal his dong is made of solid gold, and then urinates all over her. Understandably unenthralled, Miss Canada complains to her ma in law, only for her to shrug it off and nearly drown her. She then has the family's big, black henchman take her to her into a water tower to "loosen her up". The poor gal is then packed into a suitcase and taken to Paris, where she meets and has sex with a Mexican pop star whose penis gets stuck inside her when they are spotted by a group of nuns. She then falls in with a clan of weirdos who engage in an orgy where they eat a banquet and then vomit it all up and urinate over it before eating it again, and then engage in a "re-birthing" ritual in which they suckle milk from one of the clan member's breasts. Finally, she stars in a commercial in which she masturbates in a vat of chocolate.

Meanwhile...

The second woman, Anna Planeta (Anna Prucnal), is a failed communist revolutionary piloting a boat down a river that is full of candy and sugar and which has a big bust of Karl Marx attached to the front. She invites a sailor, who turns out to be an immortal wanderer who participated in the 1905 revolution aboard and has an affair with him, in which they have sex rolling around in the sugar, but she eventually stabs him. She also invites some little boys aboard and performs a strip dance in front of them in a tattered wedding gown (and this, I am afraid, is clearly not simulated) before murdering them. The police find the bodies and arrest her. The final shot of the film is of the boys being reborn out of the body bags.

In short, it's everything that typifies Euroshlock, and then some.

Is the second in a loose unofficial trilogy preceded by W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism and followed by Montenegro.
