The dark and melancholy story of a former teenage Nazi concentration camp inmate, Lucia, and the S.S. officer who was her torturer/lover, Max , who accidentally meet again in a Vienna hotel in 1957 where Max works as the night porter. They resume their sadomasochistic relationship, although Max's former S.S. comrades have something different in mind for them. The story unfolds like a gruesome dance of death.

Truly Confronting04 August 2013

It still amazes me that this film ever got made in the first place! It has to be one of the darkest tales ever told, exploring sado-masochistic relationships on a physical, emotional and psychological level. It is as disturbing as it is enlightening and that's why you can't stop watching it.... more

Shocking it its day09 December 2011

Dear Lizzy and Jayne, how kind of you to ask. will you ever come back to hear the answer? If you do then "Yes" it is well worth seeing because of the acting of and the dynamic between Dirk Bogard and Charlotte Rampling. A dark vision - a bit like Bogard in The Servant.
