Not many posts about this so, for a bit more information, Phil Coldiron wrote about Liberté in Cinema Scope and Josh Cabrita wrote about it in Reverse Shot.

I'm obviously not complaining, but it does seem significant that there appears to be absolutely no controversy about the film, whereas there definitely would have been in the 1970s or 1980s. Maybe the defenders of public morality have moved on as European art cinema possibly does not carry the middle-class intellectual cachet it used to in those days. The differing reactions, or lack of them, do seem interesting when compared to all the (understandable) controversy over Pasolini's Salo, especially as Serra, unlike Pasolini, seems to be siding with his Sadean libertines as representatives of the Enlightenment.
