Movie Info

Idiosyncratic Polish director Lech Majewski helmed this feature, which he adapted from his own novel Metaphysics. It concerns the romance that blossoms between an engineer named Chris (Chris Nightingale) and an art history expert named Claudine (Claudine Spiteri), who meet up and instantly fall into impassioned lust for one another. Before long, however, tragedy strikes in the form of a terminal illness that hits Claudine. She chooses to respond by spending her final days with Chris in Venice, against the backdrop of buildings and murals created by her favorite artist, Hieronymus Bosch. In that venue, Claudine acts as Chris's romantic, erotic and emotional guide, leading him down a pathway of intense seduction and theretofore unattained insights into himself and the nature of love. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • A luminous, highly erotic treatise on art, love, and death.

    September 28, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, the couple's intimacy is not especially interesting.

    September 28, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • You're either going to love this film and run out to see everything Majewski has directed, or you're going to be bored silly.

    June 23, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Lech Majewski's digital video riff on Death in Venice takes its name from the triptych by Hieronymus Bosch.

    June 21, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • There is magic in these intimate passion plays, which are filled with sloppy, loving detail and are mounted without a hint of pretension. Each banal moment becomes achingly gorgeous.

    June 21, 2006
  • Chris is the putative author of the film's images, but they're overlaid with Claudine's relentlessly overwhelming voice-over, which alternates between a crisp, knowing lecture about Bosch and more personal musings.
