This film contains a scene where the main actress Maria Schneider is raped by Marlon Brando. It has been recently told that this scene WAS NOT in the script. The actress was not informed about the scene. The director Bertolucci admitted that Brando and him talked about it previously and decided to use a stick of butter to rape Maria Schneider with. Bertolucci claims that did it for the purpose of art. If you do not believe me, all it takes is an internet search. The fact that the director did this and got away with it is absolutely disgusting. A woman was taken advantage of for artistic purposes??? Why would you want to watch a movie where a woman is literally raped?
