ENDS Thursday, August 7th.

The latest film by master director Roman Polanski (Carnage, The Pianist, Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby) is an acting tour de force by Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Seigner, who previously co-starred in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Based on the Tony Award-winning play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's sexually provocative novella, Venus in Fur is an enthralling battle of wills. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of unsuccessfully auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) is about to leave when actress Vanda (Seigner) bursts in, a whirlwind of erratic—and, it turns out, erotic—energy, demanding an audition. She is pushy, foul-mouthed, desperate and ill-prepared—or so it seems. But when Thomas finally, reluctantly, agrees to let her try out for the part, he is stunned and captivated by her transformation. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until, with Vanda taking an ever more dominant role, the balance of power shifts completely.


DIRECTOR: Roman Polanski
