Synopsis

Kitty (Ingrid Thulin) runs a brothel in Nazi Germany where the soldiers come to “relax”. Recording devices have been installed in each room by a power hungry army official who plans to use the information to blackmail Hitler and gain power himself.

Our take

Depraved. Decadent. Damned. Another progenitor of the cult 1970s Italian Nazisploitation genre (alongside Liliana Cavani’s The Night Porter) Tinto Brass’s Salon Kitty is a true story transformed into outrageously transgressive erotica. Featuring the legend of European cinema, Helmut Berger.
