Dusan Makavejev’s Sweet Movie is the epitome of a divisive film. It also happens to be a personal favourite of mine, mixing the evocative with the funny, intense and plain gross. While I am firmly in Makavejev’s camp, I understand why some may not want to embrace the certain scatological excesses of this film. I only recently stumbled upon this German poster and was instantly struck by how beautiful and misleading it is. This is not the whimsical erotic film the suggestive cover may have you believe.
