Venus in Fur

Roman Polanski directs this heavily meta adaptation of the Tony Award-winning play by David Ives. It's based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's controversial (and very popular) novella Venus in Furs (the book that gave us the term "sadomasochism"). In a tiny Paris theater, a famous writer-director (Mathieu Amalric) is auditioning actresses for his new play--an adaptation of von Sacher-Masoch's work. A powerhouse actress (Emmanuelle Seigner) bursts into the theater, exuding erotic energy. Pushy and foul-mouthed, she hijacks the audition process, but soon captures the director's attention by embodying the cruel manipulation in the titular story. It's exactly the sort of talky, "who's zooming who?" two-hander you're expecting. But Polanski gives it just enough kink to feel faintly transgressive. In French with English subtitles. Unrated. (Opens Friday 8/1)
