Sensual, provocative and sometimes autobiographical essay film about a man searching the world for the nature of the erotic. Most radical and personal work by Jørgen Leth, a powerful and sometimes shockingly honest essay about eros, aging and loss. Leth travels to several countries (the locations include Haiti, the Philippines, Senegal, Brazil, Argentina, Panama) to cast one particular scene: a woman, usually naked, is sitting in a hotel room, lamenting the loss of her lover who has returned to Europe. But, with each new reenactment of the scene, one begins to questions its veracity. It’s a forlorn fantasy – a man’s need to re-experience a scene he could only ever have imagined, at best. The juxtaposition of age with youth and beauty creates an overly fecund atmosphere. What emerges is an elegy for lost possibilities and a paean to sensuality and the female form – and possibly the most upfront and searing look at sexuality you will see in a long while.

film niewątpliwie na miano "przeciętnego" nie zasługuje. Ale jak oceniać gdy skala jest dwu stopniowa? estetyczna, wizualna podróż przez kobiece ciało. inne aspekty nie są istotne. nie znaczy to, że są negowane. koncentracja autora, a za nim wid (kaligulainpoland)
