Storyline

In contemporary London, a beautiful and rich young man, Dorian Gray, loves Sybil, an aspiring actress; thanks to her, he's momentarily less self-centered. He's also sitting for a portrait painted by his friend, Basil. When it's done, Dorian complains he'll grow old while it stays unchanged. On the same night, he slaps Sybil and sends her away, then accepts the seductive offer of a party's hostess to sleep with her. The next day, the painting looks slightly older. In horror and fascination, Dorian hides it away and continues a life of degradation. Over time, as the portrait becomes hideous, he's unchanged by libidinal life; finally, he and Basil face the painting. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Boys keep swinging
5 October 2009 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

Dorian Gray from the great novel by Oscar Wilde lives in London during 1960's. He's beautiful, he's charming and he's totally depraved. Just like in the book, but here there is much more of eroticism. To tell you the truth, I was quite surprised, because I thought it will be much worse. Thanks God, we have in here Helmut Berger - he's really the best choice to play Dorian and he makes this movie worth watching. If you want to know how would look Wilde's hero during the "peace-flowers-freedom-happines" times, then you should find this one and give it a try. Although I prefer the 1945 Holyywood version, this is really not bad.
