Liberté review – gruesome night in the woods as French aristos go dogging
The debauchery of a bunch of bewigged 18th-century libertines is presented with cerebral seriousness, but it’s an ordeal to watchAlbert Serra’s Liberté, or Liberty, is a gruesome midsummer night’s dream of Sadeian horror in which a bunch of verbose bewigged libertines in the 18th century gather in a dark forest in their carriages for some prototypical dogging. (The men are allowed to be old and ugly, the women not.) It is some years before the French Revolution, centuries before Viagra. This film is an ordeal that I never want to go through again, but it’s undoubtedly executed with a cerebral conviction and uncompromising seriousness that no Anglo Saxon film-maker could approach.A group of (fictional) aristocrats, expelled from the court of Louis XVI, approach a sympathetic German nobleman, the Duc de Walchen (played by Visconti veteran Helmut Berger) for help; with his guidance they assemble one moonlit night in a forest for some uninhibited debauchery – and only that quaint word will do. Like joyless vampires, they murmur to each other their jaded, detached appreciation for the spectacles of flogging and bondage that take place in front of them, and periodically participate.

Not that there’s anything thin about this version: packed with smoky haddock and soft, buttery vegetables, it’s the perfect winter warmer. Continue reading...

Where Tesco leads on business rates relief others should follow
Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, B&M and co must decide whether to return the chancellor’s giftsThere is joy in heaven over one sinner who repents. There will also be astonishment on earth that Tesco is handing back to the Treasury its undeserved £585m pandemic freebie on business rates. The chances of a U-turn had seemed remote.Only two months ago, Tesco’s board defended keeping the money. While some of us regarded that stance as disgraceful, it would be hard to say the directors were feeling much heat. Even the Treasury, which will borrow £394bn this year on behalf of all of us, hadn’t dropped a hint that it would like a few quid back from the big grocers. Continue reading...
