Three almost entirely unconnected short films from some great directors, the only link between them being a theme of sensuality.
None of the films is a masterpiece but a couple of them make this worth watching. Wong Kar Wai's film is the first and certainly the best of them and if you liked 'In the Mood for Love' or '2046' then you should enjoy this too. It's not as good as those great movies but it's unmistakably Wong Kar Wai's work. Downbeat, moody, dark and beautifully directed.
I enjoyed the second film, by Steven Soderbergh. It's good fun and much more light-hearted than the others. Admittedly it's just a thin storyline about an ad-man suffering from a creative block and a recurring dream but it's well made and raises a few smiles especially from Alan Arkin who really hams up his role.
Unfortunately Michelangelo Antonioni's film, the last of the 3, is a bit of a shambles and is an almost entirely incomprehensible story of a couple in the throes of a crumbling relationship. It seems to be trying very hard to make an important comment on the human condition but if it is then what it's saying is completely beyond me. It's a shame to end the collection so badly, especially from a legend like Antonioni, and someone should've had the courage to tell him it isn't worthy of his name. If this is, unfortunately, your introduction to Antonioni, he is so much better than this!
