Description: A masterpiece of kinkiness from Germany about a hot-blooded dominatrix who decides to take on a female lover in order to fulfill her sexual fantasies. A stylish, erotic glimpse into the world of bondage and discipline. Wanda, a mysterious dominatrix, operates a unique club of S&M erotica on the Hamburg waterfront. Being cruel is her profession while inventing traps is her specialty. She lures men and women of all types into her sadomasochistic world where audiences pay for the privilege of seeing her humiliate her slaves. Justine, the innocent American, has to learn that passion is just another illusion. Mr. Mahrsch, a journalist, is granted an interview only after having practical experience. Gregor,a male performer at the club who falls in love with her, violating the rules of the master/slave relationship. Only Caren,her German lesbian lover (who has a shoe fetish)–thinks she knows what life is all about. The film presents the world of masochistic lust as a performance of hidden desires. The rules are extremely severe and the game extremely cruel, but the participants know what they’ve agreed to.
