When the couple attempt to re-create their sadomasochistic relationship, his former SS comrades begin to stalk them. Operatic and disturbing, The Night Porter deftly examines the cruelty and decadence of Nazi culture
Charlotte Rampling made a name for herself in the 1960s for her seductive roles in films such as The Damned and The Night Porter, complex, sultry, and darkly mysterious characters. She became the poster girl for swinging London, whizzing around in a haze of Mini Coopers, minidresses and ménage à trois. Now aged 67, she still looks remarkable and was announced earlier this year as the new face of NARS make-up.
The Night Porter, directed in 1974 by the Italian Liliana Cavani, stars Dirk Bogarde as Maxmilian Theo Aldorfer, a former Nazi SS officer, and Charlotte Rampling as Lucia Atherton, a survivor of his concentration camp.
