    Anchor Bay
    are all set to release the classic 1974 film The Night Porter on 30th July, arriving on both DVD and Blu-ray formats. This controversial drama is a story of forbidden love and the aphrodisiacal effects of decadence and cruelty, yes kids, sadomasochism.

    Directed by Liliana Cavani, it stars Charlotte Rampling and Dirk Bogarde, and features production design from Dante Ferretti. With a recommended retail price of £9.99 for the SD, and £15.99 for the HD version, extras will include interviews with the cast and crew.

    Synopsis is as follows...

    Vienna, 1957. Max is a former Nazi concentration camp officer, now employed as a respectable night porter at one of the city's most luxurious hotels. Still anguished by the guilt of his actions during the war, he attempts to relieve his conscience by devoting himself to his work while awaiting the upcoming trial of himself and his fellow Nazi officers.

    But one fateful evening Max's disturbing past catches up with him in the form of the beautiful and alluring Lucia. Now the wife of a respected American classical composer, almost 15 years earlier Lucia was a teenage concentration camp inmate and Max's lover in an aberrant sado-masochistic relationship. Bound by their memories and uncontrollably drawn to each other, Max and Lucia rekindle their bizarre love affair. But their future together becomes threatened by other ghosts from the past.

    And now for the original trailer, which won't make much sense at all:
