Montreal- from The obscenity trial of a Montreal make-up artist began Tuesday morning as the first witness took the stand.

Remy Couture is charged with producing and distributing obscene material after a short movie he created caught the attention of police in Austria.

Couture made the film in 2007 and it features violent sexual assaults, some of which appear so realistic that police in Austria thought it depicted actual murder.

They advised Interpol, which brought the film to the attention of Montreal police.

In 2009 police arrested Couture, saying the scenes in the movie depicting violence and cruelty were graphic to the point of obscenity.

During the trial psychiatrists will testify for the prosecution that such realistic depictions can arouse, provoke and inspire others.

The Crown will also call several police detectives to explain documents they seized when they searched Couture’s premises.

The 12 members of the jury will have to decide what constitutes obscenity in Canada, an admittedly subjective concept.

The short movie, called Inner Depravity, attracted a cult following when it was released online.

If found guilty Couture faces a maximum sentence of two years in jail.

Regardless of the verdict, court observers say this case is likely to head to the Supreme Court of Canada for a final resolution.
