  1. AVA's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Eine unerwartet sensitive Einsicht. Sonderbar wirkt hier der so absolut unmännliche Habitus des Hauptdarstellers.

  2. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Pornographer

  3. José Neves's rating of the film The Pornographer

    35mm. What's related to father-son story is typically French, supposedly problematic, diminishing what really matters here, which is all that relates to Léaud's magnificent character and acting. They are moments of an ironic theatrical detachment, perfectly integrated in a persona without immediate psicologic reading, as if Bresson did porn, probablement urged by le Diable, fact visually achieved by the director.

  6. Nicolai's rating of the film The Pornographer

  7. bastos's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Story with a lot of potential but not adequately set to scene. I hoped that this would be be a quality movie about and with pornography. But unfortunately it is not.

  8. rian's rating of the film The Pornographer

    nearly jumped out of my couch when i heard Labradford music as background of sex scene..

  9. lina maj's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Jean-Pierre Leaud got old with dignity. Not many actors manage to do so.

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Una película que se concentra en dos generaciones, padre e hijo, ambos viviendo en una temporalidad en donde sus discursos no funcionan. Ambos son presas de las dudas y la frustración. Sus fantasías de pronto se ven estancadas y en vía a la conformidad. Ahora...me llama la atención ese performance de Léaud tan Truffaut. Es un actor que parece también desencajar en medio de actores tan poco inspiradores.

  11. Superfrog's rating of the film The Pornographer

    A powerful film about family, and a really creative reflection on pornography, its evolution and the process that accompanies its creation. Not titillating in the least.

  12. Albrecht B. Christoph's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Die Tiefsinnigkeit des Films soll sich wohl in der Lahmen Art des Hauptdarstellers ausdrücken. Wahrscheinlich nur I'm Original genießbar.

  13. El Biffo's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Must-see if you are a fan of Jean-Pierre Leaud! There was a time, during the early 70's, when some directors could only get a film made if it was porno-ish, so there were a lot of strange films that obviously were obliged to have a lot of nudity, but the producer couldn't care less about anything else, so the director was able to do almost anything. Leaud plays a director who is a leftover from that time...

  14. Leonid Sokolov's rating of the film The Pornographer

    A wonderfull movie. I would read the film as one on moviemaking in general. Is a pornographer, is a direcor an artist? Bonello was lucky to have the face of Jean-Pierre Léaud for his protagonist, this face we know as the incarnation of cinematic art. Beautiful pictures frame this inquery of an artist as a man, father and pornographer. As we know after Cannes 2011: BONELLO is a great pornogapher himself.

  15. Franc's rating of the film The Pornographer

    Is Mr Bonello of Maltese descent?

  16. DAVID's rating of the film The Pornographer

    good question franc...i have the dvd - ha nghidlek hemm shots ala maltija fih ta hehehehe

  17. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The Pornographer

    A lot more interesting than advertised. Nice to see Leaud taking such ballsy film roles this late in his career. An interesting character portrait that goes unexpected places but doesn't say as much about pornography as Bonello's later HOUSE OF TOLERANCE does about prostitution.

  18. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film The Pornographer

    una especie de continuación chafa de eustache y garrel. patético el personaje de director porno con poses antonioniescas. hoy estamos más perdidos y confundidos que jamás en la historia contemporánea ¿por qué no asumirlo con radicalidad y hasta sus últimas consecuencias?
