My submission for most effed up foreign movie:
Sweet movie 1974 Imdb. 6.1 France/Canada/West Germany
Very disturbing to most people. Quebecois beauty Carole Laure quit and was lured back. Excerpt:
Because of her role in the film, Anna Prucnal was exiled from her native Poland for 7 years. The government even denied her a visa to see her dying mother.

Carole Laure was asked about this movie: "That was a sad experience," she says. "I admire Dusan very much but after he signed me to the movie, he asked me to do things no human being could do. I had to refuse. I could not do these things as a person, let alone an actress. I don't mean sex scenes, to them I have no objection if the script is right. I mean much worse things than that.
Watch at your own risk...
