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.

The Italian dialogue was dubbed by Pier Paolo Pasolini and Dacia Maraini.

Originally the entire movie was intended to be about the adventures of Miss Canada, but the actress portraying her, Carole Laure, quit during the commune scene. After that the plot about the female boat captain was written and added to the movie.

The BBFC refused to give the film a UK cinema certificate in 1975, effectively banning it in the UK.

Features a performance by Otto Muehl and his commune of Vienna Actionists. Mühl later renounced the film in an interview as being "downright kitsch".

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...
