Sight and Sound - 09/01/2007
"Like a more phallocentric Russ Meyer flick, SWEET MOVIE revels in caricature."

Plot Synopsis:

"Sweet Movie" is Dusan Makavejev's avant-garde vision of sexuality, communism, Nazi and Soviet atrocities, bodily functions and sweets - lots and lots of sweets.
Following two parallel plots, the film focuses first on Miss Canada, a virgin who wins a surreal beauty contest to become the wife of multi-billionaire with a golden phallus. The billionaire has her stuffed into a suitcase and shipped to Paris. She loses her virginity to a singer, falls into sexually induced shock, and after a stay with the Otto Muehl group she ultimately finds herself a model being bathed in a vat of chocolate.
The second plot features a captain of a ship bearing the head of Karl Marx on its prow. She makes love to a young sailor in a bed of sugar and kills him, mixing his blood with the sugar.
