The Story of O

Histoire d'O

105 mins
5.6 / 10 (538)


France, the 70s. The beautiful O, a young woman and fashion photographer, is taken by her lover René to a bizarre retreat, where she is chained, whipped and taught the rules of sexual perversion. René discharges a personal debt by transferring possession of O to his step-brother, Sir Stephen…

MUBI's take
