Friedrich (Fritz) Nietzsche, played by Erland Josephson, Lou Andreas- Salome (Dominique Sanda) and Paul Ree (Robert Powell), whose menage a trois is examined in Liliana Cavani’s ”Beyond Good and Evil,” are spending an evening together. Fritz dares Lou to take a vase off the piano and use it as a chamber pot; Lou, the oft-proclaimed free spirit of the three, calmly obliges. Then Lou and Paul couple on the floor, with an anguished Fritz looking on and finally grasping Paul’s hand. At last, weary of all the merriment, Lou pauses. ”Intellectuals!” she says.
