Quills

"There are no bad words... only bad deeds."

A nobleman with a literary flair, the Marquis de Sade lives in a madhouse where a beautiful laundry maid smuggles his erotic stories to a printer, defying orders from the asylum's resident priest. The titillating passages whip all of France into a sexual frenzy, until a fiercely conservative doctor tries to put an end to the fun.

  • Every single line from the script that was cut made it into the film either written on de Sade's clothing, the bed sheets or in his prison cell at the end.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Simone is buying her copy of "Justine", the date visible on the cover is MDCCCCVII: 1907. There is one C too many.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Madeleine is putting on her dress after getting her wounds clean, she slips her arm into the sleeve twice.
  • The actors playing the inmates all had their characters diagnosed with genuine mental illnesses by a psychiatrist.
