Probably a bit generous there, but I like life photography and this film does two things right: explore the process of extracting meaning from a model and torturing late Jean Rochefort about being on his last leg, and facing his mortality. The second part I enjoyed less but the first is sustained by creative scene composition, light setups and a very well chosen actress, with suitable pilosity, for the role.
Una pequeña joya en B/N que presenta la manida temática del "pintor y la modelo" desde otro ángulo, basándose en hechos reales, en la historia de un escultor un poco olvidado. Interpretaciones excelentes, como también la música y sobre todo la fotografía. De lo mejor de la cosecha española de ese año.
