Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom , commonly referred to as simply Salò, is a 1975 Italian film written and directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini,
It is based on the book The 120 Days of Sodom, by the Marquis de Sade.
The story is in four segments, inspired by Dante's Inferno: the Anteinferno, the Circle of Manias, the Circle of Shit and the Circle of Blood. It was Pasolini's last film; he was murdered shortly before Salò was released.
Because of its scenes depicting intensely graphic violence, sadism and sexual depravity, the film was extremely controversial upon its release, and remains banned in several countries.
