Trivia

In 1979 Polselli re-dubbed the soundtrack to give the censors the idea the report was trying to prove the masculine guilt, in almost all the situations the sexual degeneration of women, therefore the victim of real historical sexual violence. This pseudo-feminist version is an over-the-top film of sexual excess that leads to the charge of the cinema industry on the sexual abuse of woman for mere commercial intents. See more »

User Reviews

 
Sexually perverse Italian smut.
2 May 2008 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Oscenita" is perhaps the most scandalous Renato Polselli's film.Banned for few years in Italy due to its transgressive sexual content and released in theaters in 1979 this piece of sleaze offers several sexually explicit scenes including masturbation with a candle,whipping,rape and sexual intercourse with a donkey.Unfortunately my copy of "Oscenita" is in Italian language,so the plot went beyond me,but if you are a fan of sleazy exploitation cinema you can't miss it.When it comes to Polselli I have only seen his giallo "Delirium" and Satanic sleaze "The Reincarnation of Isabel",but after seeing "Oscenita" I really want to get his other more obscure movies.8 out of 10.
