I have no strong feelings either way.

Eros part d'une très bonne idée, un film à sketches par Michelangelo Antonioni, Wong Kar Wai et Steven Soderbergh autour de l'amour et du sexe. Malheureusement, les trois segments sont très inégaux et si ceux de Soderbergh & Wong Kar Wai sont plutôt bons (même s'ils sont très loin de leurs standards, malgré des thèmes récurrents dans leurs oeuvres), celui d'Antonioni est une catastrophe extrêmement gênante. Pire encore, les trois segments ne forment aucune unité et on peine à comprendre ce que le film raconte.

The Hand was perhaps the only thing I liked about this movie, and I respect Wong Kar-wai for that. Equilibrium was okay, and I believe Soderbergh is decent, but I was very disappointed with Michelangelo Antonioni's addition, though I have deep respect for Antonioni as a filmmaker.

An anthology film which explore the themes of love and sex, in three parts, the first directed by Wong Kar-wai (Chungking Express (1994) and 2046 (2004)), Steven Soderbergh and Michelangelo Antonioni. While it's a good idea for a film, and you have 3 arty directors on board, it ends up being a pretentious mess. Slow, confused and not particular erotic when it should be, which a great shame, as it LOOKS good, but that's it. Wong Kar-wai's segment, The Hand, has prostitute Miss Hua (Gong Li) planning to replace her old dressmaker Master Jin (Feng Tien) with a younger man Zhang (Chen Chang). In Soderbergh's Equilibrium, set in the 1950's, it has Nick Penrose (Robert Downey Jr.) relaying a recurring dream he has about an unknown woman (Ele Keats) to psychiatrist Dr. Pearl (Alan Arkin), who seems to take pleasure in flying paper planes out of his office window. In Antonioni's segement, The Dangerous Thread of Things, couple Christopher (Christopher Buchholz) and Cloe (Regina Nemni) have an arguement and briefly separate, and Cloe has a sensual encounter on the beach with Linda (Luisa Ranieri). It's got a very weird tone, and it's Wong Kar-Wai and Soderbergh's segments come out best, while Antonioni's feels like a parody of his own work, considering Pedro Almodóvar was originally slated to do a segment, it makes you wonder what could have been.

3 different films from 3 masters. The Hand is excellent. Others are also.

As a friend of mine once said, this is film school in ninety minutes.

If you only watch one of the short films here, do yourself a favor and just watch The Hand. These arbitrary 5 stars are for that one alone.

The Hand & The Equilibrium were good, But I didn't like Antonioni's The Dangerous Thread Of Things

Kar Wai Wong's was the best. Soderbergh's was ok. And the other one,,, don't worth watching.

Wong kar-Wai's piece is the best out of the three in this rather hit and miss collaboration.

Typical uneven anthology film. Loved the first one, was intrigued with the second (Downey Jr and Steven Soderberg, yes!) the last was a bore.

Existem várias frustrações associadas aos filmes pensados como um tríptico: muitos dos capítulos incluídos não ultrapassam a configuração do esboço e, quando conseguem ser mais que isso, à (C) frustrante não terem uma duração maior. "Eros" reúne três mini-filmes sobre o erotismo e a imaginação respectivamente realizados por Wong Kar Wai, Soderbergh e Antonioni. Todos eles nomes imensamente respeitados e com um historial suficiente para deixar a salivar os apreciadores. Na ficha tà (C)cnica, "Eros" promete óptimo cinema, mas o que acontece, na prática, à (C) tudo aquilo que tememos neste tipo de trípticos: aborrecimento atenuado pela curiosidade e semi-embaraços para nomes capazes de muito melhor. "Eros" nem começa mal com "The Hand", uma história de atracção contida e altamente estilizada, um pouco à imagem de "In the Mood for Love", do mesmo Wong Kar Wai, mas perde-se assim que Soderbergh transforma aquilo que devia um filme sà (C)rio sobre erotismo num pequeno sketch humorístico sobre os sonhos e como à (C) inútil solicitar a ajuda de alguà (C)m para interpretá-los. à esse o enredo do apenas simpático "Equilibrium", que vale essencialmente para satisfazer âcompletistasâ? do Soderbergh e para percebermos que Robert Downey Jr. faz muita falta em mais filmes indie e "labours of love" como este. Mas o pior está reservado para o fim: o capítulo filmado por Antonioni não chega a ser nada alà (C)m de umas bonitas sequências coreografadas e a prova de que o realizador sabe escolher tão bem as suas "actrizes" em Itália como Russ Meyer nos Estados Unidos XXXL. "The Dangerous Thread of Things" explora alguns paralelos com o Antonioni clássico e adorado (a perdição de um homem à (C) geralmente uma linda mulher que lhe troca as voltas), embora fique sempre em terreno de saldo muito negativo à custa do seu estilo puramente simbólico (e chato) e de um over-dub posterior dos diálogos que lhe dá um aspecto amador quase constrangedor. Custa a crer que foi filmado pelo mesmo Antonioni que deu ao mundo uma musa tão como Monica Vitti. "The Hand": 2,5/5. "Equiibrium": 2/5. "The Dangerous Thread of Things": 1/5. "Eros": 2/5. (recebe meia-estrelinha a mais por ter bonitos separadores entre os filmes)

Two out of three ain't bad...

Well, just Wong Kar Wai's segment
October 23, 2011
2 stars for the first film.
With Kar Wai, Gong Li, Chris Doyle it was bound to look good.

Fell asleep in the second film.

Eros is made up of three short films related by theme. As far as I'm concerned, only the first, directed by Kar-Wai Wong, is successful, and it is a beautiful piece, at least a 4 star effort, maybe even better than that. If you enjoy Soderbergh's style (I'm not a big fan), the second has an interesting take on the subject and may be worth checking out. After that, you can safely turn the movie off because the Antonioni piece is a complete waste of time.

'the hand' by wong kar wai : 5 out of 5. 'equilibrium' by steven soderbergh : 2.5 out of 5. 'the thread of things' by michelangelo anonioni : 1 out of 5. 'the hand' touched my heart. it is powerfully acted and directed. this is the only precious part of the whole film.

With names like Wong Kar Wai and Antonioni, you would expect something great, but Eros just doesn't work. Wai's story was the best of the three (still pretty weak), and Soderbergh's was the absolute worst. What really made me scratch my head was the title, Eros. In all honesty, I found nothing to be erotic in all three of the short films, instead I saw them as either a sappy melodrama, or as something simply trying too hard to be bold and poetic. Don't let the big names fool you, because you will be wasting two hours for nothing.

Three stories of passion, love and lust that very much vary in quality and atmosphere. Antonioni's episode is a real turn-off.
