Madame X - Eine absolute Herrscherin

West Germany, 1978
Fantasy, Romance


On the women’s ship Orlando the flags of attack, leather, weapons, lesbian love and death are raised with a beauty which dispenses with a total domination of the viewer’s gaze. The aesthetic is strictly stylized, exhibiting itself without overwhelming us.
