The real-life husband and wife team of Polanski and Seigner may have enjoyed making this, but it's not one of his better movies. One wonders why they bothered.

Description

Venus in Fur is a 2013 French drama film on DVD, directed by Roman Polanski.

Controversial director Roman Polanski serves up a delicious provocation with the risqué Venus in Fur. A taut adaptation of David Ives’ Tony Award winning play, Polanski’s film is a head-spinning plunge into a world of sex and power, where the line between acting and reality is dangerously blurred.

Thomas Novachek (Mathieu Amalric) is struggling to cast the lead in his theatrical production of the notorious Sacher-Masoch novella of the title. As if on cue, the abrasive and brash Vanda (Polanski’s wife Emmanuelle Seigner) appears at the auditions. With the play already memorised and an unnerving way of completely inhabiting the dominatrix role, Vanda casts an intoxicating spell on Thomas that spirals into a power play beyond the stage.

Both Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Seigner deliver cheeky and daring performances as Polanski expertly weaves their web of transgressive intrigue. A wicked psychological study, Venus in Fur is a riveting, entertaining and expertly made film that is sure to have audience members talking after the credits roll.
