Taris
30 December 2011 | by (Portland OR) – See all my reviews

A commissioned short meant to show off renowned swimmer Jean Taris and demonstrate his technique, but it's more of interest in demonstrating Vigo's technique. The photography is absolutely gorgeous, especially the underwater parts. As a celebration of physicality, it looks forward to Riefenstahl's OLYMPIA, showcasing the various graceful feats the human body is capable of, using sensuous close-ups and slow motion. It's undeniably a minor work thematically (not to mention narratively) but it is a lovely bit of craftsmanship, punctuated with some nice bits of humor, including an ending that will look awfully familiar to fans of BEING THERE.
