Albert Serra | Spain, France, Portugal, Germany | 2019 | 120 min.
O.V in French and German in English and Spanish

There is no mildness to be found in Albert Serra: his cruising set in 1774 caused from run-aways to ovations in Cannes, where he added to his shelve the Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize. Following the path of Story of My Death and The Death of Louis XIV, Liberté tells the story of a group of French nobles who export debauchery to Germany. Sex is set as a class equalizer, as an eternally disturbing and incorrect element, the never-satisfied-thirst, a symbol of then and now. A game of desiring glances and bodies. Just like the cinema itself.
