La Vénus à la fourrure

Darum geht's

Nach einem langen Tag voller enttäuschender Castings ist der Theaterregisseur Thomas kurz davor alles hinzuwerfen. Keine der Schauspielerinnen, die sich bei ihm vorstellen, entspricht seinen Erwartungen. Dann taucht Vanda auf. Vanda scheint all das zu verkörpern, was Thomas zutiefst verabscheut.

Of all Polanski’s latter-day chamber pieces… this is the liveliest: taut, witty and, while very much a male film, nevertheless a sly dismantling of the sexual politics of performance. But it’s weirdly striking just how much Amalric, playing Thomas like a man in a permanent state of advanced little-boy terror, resembles the director in his youth. You can’t help speculating on who, in this particular showbiz household, wears the shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather.

This is Polanski’s most simple and unalloyed film, a joyous two-hander and as near to a comedy as Polanski has ever been – bearing in mind his customary attraction to discomfort, panic and a nagging imminence of the sinister.

[Venus in Fur] is a perverse funhouse of a movie, in which identities get pulverized and sexual power play never ceases: “Dutchman” by way of “Vanya on 42nd Street.” It’s the work of a master dabbling in small pieces rather than epic ones, and putting all touches into perfect place without so much as glancing at his canvas.
