No Staginess on the Part of Sundance Selects; Polanski’s “Venus in Fur” Heads to U.S. Market

5 June 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Unlike the beating he took for his stage to screen translation of God of Carnage with Carnage, Polanski’s Venus in Fur, a film that was scheduled so late in Cannes Film Festival’s Main Comp that in many respects became an end of fest delightful surprise (see our festival wrap-up) has found a home (potentially beating out Spc) in the U.S. via Sundance Selects. We expect some added fall film festival showings (possibly Telluride or Tiff) before it secures an end of year slot.

Gist: Set in modern-day Paris, Venus In Fur follows writer-director Thomas (Amalric) and a pushy, foul-mouthed actress named Vanda (Seigner) who bursts into auditions in a whirlwind of erratic energy. Vanda’s emotionally charged audition for the gifted but demanding playwright becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, and ultimately, attraction and obsession. »
