4.0 out of 5 stars A good try, 26 Oct 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Venus in Furs [DVD] [1994] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Unlike Franco's pathetic version, this movie at least attempts to follow the original story-line. The camerawork is often quite effective, and along with the black and white format does occasionally give a brooding chairoscuro which so oddly fits with the dark perversion of the theme. The sado-masochistic titillation is in proportion which Masoch's tale, and the setting is updated to modern times. The finale changes in this production, and although Wanda still teaches Severin a painful lesson she is not the saviour; and instead of being redeemed Severin is crushed. Still, a bold attempt to film a difficult tale. Admirers of the author and the book will probably enjoy this version.
