Day 13 - A guilty pleasure...

The Night Porter

Here's the Wiki synopsis:
Dirk Bogarde plays Maximilian Theo Aldorfer, a former Nazi SS officer, and Charlotte Rampling plays Lucia Atherton, a concentration camp survivor who had an ambiguous relationship with Aldorfer. Flashbacks show Max tormenting Lucia, but also acting as her protector. In an iconic scene, Lucia sings a Marlene Dietrich song to the concentration camp guards while wearing pieces of an SS uniform, and Max "rewards" her with the severed head of a male inmate who had been bullying the other inmates. (A reference to Salome.)

Thirteen years after World War II, Lucia meets Aldorfer again; he is now the night porter at a Vienna hotel. There, they fall back into their sadomasochistic relationship.

Here's the famous scene of Charlotte Rampling singing for the Nazis

And yeah, I find this movie to be incredibly erotic, especially the scenes with Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling together in the hotel room in Vienna.

Yes, I'm Jewish. Yes, I'm a feminist. Doesn't matter. I love this movie and think it's hot as hell.
