The last film I saw at this year’s Cannes Film Festival was Roman Polanski‘s adaptation of David Ives‘ play, Venus in Fur, centering on an actress’ (Emmanuelle Seigner) attempts to convince a director, Thomas (Mathieu Amalric), she’s perfect for a role in his upcoming production.

I actually liked the film quite a bit saying it’s 96-minute running time was a “breath of fresh air that’s as darkly comedic as it is wonderfully fantastic.” Here’s a snippet from my review:

I found immediate joy in the film, both in Amalric and Seigner’s performances, but also in the sharp and occasionally dark screenplay, which has its fun with gender roles and, for as much as we know, may all be going on in Thomas’ head.

However, to the point of whether or not it’s all real or not, I couldn’t care less. I was entertained by the film on a surface level, any additional conversation simply adds to the enjoyment, though I find it not in the least bit necessary. Vanda, walking in from the rain gives off the appearance of being a clueless clod, desperate more than accomplished and/or familiar with the craft she wishes to trade in.

You can read the full review right here.

As of now, Sundance hasn’t set a domestic release date, but with the November 13 release coming up in France a new French trailer and poster have arrived (via The Playlist). Yes, the trailer is in French without subtitles, but I just wanted an excuse to write about the film… so there.
