Storyline

In 1931 Paris, Anais Nin meets Henry Miller and his wife June. Intrigued by them both, she begins expanding her sexual horizons with her husband Hugo as well as with Henry and others. June shuttles between Paris and New York trying to find acting jobs while Henry works on his first major work, "Tropic of Cancer," a pseudo-biography of June. Anais and Hugo help finance the book, but June is displeased with Henry's portrayal of her, and Anais and Henry have many arguments about their styles of writing on a backdrop of a Bohemian lifestyle in Paris.

Ward, Thurman and Medeiros, an interesting menage a trois....
10 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

This richly textured period piece deals with the subject of sexual obsession and attitudes, which I found in many ways to be reminiscent to Bernardo Bertoluccis Last Tango in Paris. It's an insightful examination of Anais Nin ( Maria de Mederios) diaries explaining her relationship with author Henry Miller ( Fred Ward in a terrific portrayal) and Millers wife June ( a luminous Uma Thurman in her pre Pulp Fiction fame). It's the central performances of the three leads which holds the film together. Beautiful cinematography and lavish production design, director Philip Kaufman has perfectly captured the atmosphere of 1930's Europe. The script sometimes falls into predictability but is saved by Kaufmans inventive direction and the wonderful acting.

Kevin Spacey also shines in one of his early film roles.
