Movie Night: The Night Porter

“Mixed feelings are the only ones possible about the rerelease of Liliana Cavani’s 1974 shocker The Night Porter, a ripe piece of upper-middlebrow arthouse scandal in its day. The shock that greeted the affair between Dirk Bogarde’s SS officer and Charlotte Rampling’s Holocaust survivor looks dated 46 years on, but the film is an intriguing period piece.” The Guardian, 2020
