Editorial Reviews

Strong women in provocative poses, confident, mysterious in Helmut Newton's photography, the lines between art and pornography are blurred. Whether fashion, portraiture or nudes, Newton's dramatically staged, voyeuristic shots are also
reflections of Western society. In 1988, Adrian Maben visited the star photographer in his adopted home in
Monte Carlo and accompanied him to photo sessions in Los Angeles, Berlin and Paris. On these trips, he caught rare glimpses of the artist's private life and work. Stars like Karl Lagerfeld and Catherine Deneuve recount what it was like to work with one of the most
sought-after photographers of the 20th century.

This is not the best documentary film about Helmut Newton and his photography. There is a more recent one about the production of his massive book project "SUMO," but I've not been able to find it for sale anywhere. I saw it on the Sundance Channel in the last year or two. This one however is worth seeing and owning by those interested in his erotic style of fashion photography. It is a re-release of a 1988 documentary and drags a bit here and there although the beautiful nudes that grace the entire 100 minutes of film manages to keep the audience's attention from straying from the television or computer screen.
Although I have no way of knowing for certain, I think the films and videos of his work may have problems with the censors of many nations and that's why they are hard to find?
Unlike "Newton's Autobiography" that paints him much like a randy gigolo, one of the startling conclusions that is so obvious in this film is that he is a very professional, somewhat shy professional photographer that enjoys being around stunningly beautiful women but it's strictly a business proposition for him. Several of the more interesting scenes in the video are of Helmut sitting in a directors chair literally surrounded by star-struck beautiful young women that seem to be dying to be photographed in the nude by him. He is constantly shown looking at them and their modeling book samples and asking questions about their experience and physical condition. Some of them disrobe to show him their physical attributes but several are too shy to do that, at least on camera. After all, Newton's wife June, the motion picture camera crew, his photographic assistant and make up people are always present.

Newton says he quite superficial as an artist, interesting mainly in legs, hips, etc. But his technique, in a way, raw, as he is not obsessed with lenses, when applied in Hollywood, Berlin, or Monte Carlo, always tell a story.

The story is usually about an "idle rich" and tall young woman, with nothing but time to burn on self-pampering; yet, school girlish when actually connecting with the Photographer, via phone. Then, this "untouchable", cultured figure, loses the grandeur and is relegated to back street mystery. A room with a small table in the center, lit only by the sunlight and Newton's reflector.

A great travelogue, here with a number of up close interviews with the models, famous and semi-famous.

If you think you're getting just a movie version of a helmut Newton book, forget it - this is an advanced course in how a Photographer who rschews art is anything but pornographic.

There is an incredible black and white photo of a young heiress and her Mother, just sad shades of gray in the B & W; the child looks unhappily into the camera and the adult focuses on her own shoes.

This film has been newly released on the Arthaus label distributed by Naxos. The original film was made in 1988 it was previously released on DVD by Image This is a basic transfer of the film. It has not been restored and does appear grainy in parts. That said, here is my review:

More than a documentary about this world famous photographer, best known for his fashion photos and nude photos of women in unusual and erotic positions, this is a series of "living photos", as we follow Newton as he shoots these models and the photos come to life. The narrator gives us the basic facts and the rest consists of interviews with Newton, who definitely has a big ego but can be very funny as well, along with his wife and his models, both famous (Candace Bergen and Catherine Deneuve) and not. WE don't learn about his growing up years - that would have been nice - but, rather, on his life during his productive, and lucrative, years. He refers to his high fee often.

The film is rather long - at 100 minutes - but there's such beauty in the women he shoots that you don't mind. You won't learn anything about photography here, nor much about Newton's background, but you won't be bored. You will experience pop culture in Monte Carlo and Los Angeles (his two homes) in the 80s as you follow him to his favorite haunts.

If you like Newton's photographs, and especially if you enjoy great black and white photographs of nude females, you will definitely like this film. Though not perfect, its worth seeking out in this new release.

Well done documentary of this unique photographer. His photos are his signature and they immediately invoke his name. Could have given this a 3 star because of the nature of low def docu film but there is nothing obscured just not HD quality. This rare view is worthy of 4 stars.
