Description:
Possibly the boldest Slovenian film of all time, Masquerade was banned for over a decade for its sexually explicit content. An abridged version received its premiere in 1971 at Kino Sloga, while the final cut was not released until 1982.
Although perfectly satisfied and well-provided for in her marriage, Dina, young wife of a sports director Gantar, falls for a handsome student Luka. In order to spend as much time with him as possible, she hires him as a tutor to her son. Gantar senses that there's something going on between them. At a party attended by Luka and his girlfriend, Petra, Gantar forces a confession from his wife. When Gantar rapes Dina in a drunken frenzy, Luka punches him. Downhearted, he then leaves the party and goes on a trip with Petra. Things get complicated upon his return, and Luka finds himself fatefully torn between the two women who love him.

“Stanley Kubrick made Lolita in 1962 – and it was promoted with the slogan: 'How did they even manage to film Lolita?' Of course, Kubrick didn't see Hladnik's Masquerade. If he had, he would have suggested to Hladnik that he promotes it using the slogan ‘How did they ever manage to film Masquerade?'” (Marcel Štefančič Jr., Mladina)
