The Academy of Muses
A university professor teaches a class on muses in art and literature as a means of romancing his female students in this breathtaking new film from Jose Luis Guerín, director of the widely heralded IN THE CITY OF SYLVIA. Part relationship drama, part intellectual discourse, the film centers on a philology professor — played by actual professor Raffaele Pinto — and the women surrounding him: his wife and students. But as each and every player engages in debates — concerning, among other things, art, the artist’s perspective, and male-female dynamics — Guerín focuses as much attention on the slippery boundary between art and life, and the romantically-charged arguments and actions of his protagonist.
