Wow - this is the first Henry Jaglom movie that I have seen, but you can bet I'll be seeing more. His interviews with the women and how the movies influenced their perceptions of how relationships "should be" was incredible. In almost every single interview segment, I had a little, "yup, that sounds right" experience. Yes, the romance was wonderful, as was the duality of the Venice, Italy life with the Venice, California life. And I had my own "wouldn't it be wonderful to be floating around on a canal in Venice" point of view. So I was doing exactly what he shows us the movies do! ;) Anyway, a wonderful film, I plan to buy it, and replay it whenever I feel the urge to run after that "perfect man who will sweep me away and solve all my problems."

This review is an excerpt from my book “Killer B’s: The 237 Best Movies On Video You’ve (Probably) Never Seen,” which is available as an ebook on Amazon. If you enjoy this review, there are 236 more like it in the book (plus a whole lot more). Check it out!

VENICE/VENICE: Dean (Jaglom) is an independent filmmaker attending a film festival in Venice, Italy. One of his numerous interviewers is Jeanne (Alard), a Parisian journalist smitten with his films and their sensitive insights. His wheeling, dealing and schmoozing at the festival, however, shatters her romantic illusions about his screen persona, and she leaves, disenchanted and disappointed. Cut to Venice, California, some time later. Jeanne shows up unexpectedly at Dean’s home to pursue their initial attraction. Problem is, Dean’s already living with someone. Whose true love will overcome all obstacles?

Discussion: “It’s really hard to think that real life exists independent of the movies,” Jaglom-as-Dean admits. He might as well have entitled this film “Real/Reel,” as his experiments in cinema faux verité reach new heights of integration here. Or is that new depths of self-indulgence? The film ponders that question too, as well as more important questions, like: How do movies affect our life, especially in terms of self-concept and romantic expectation? And: Are movies—even “realistic” movies—an accurate reflection of life? Illustration is punctuated by discussion in a brave attempt to blur the border between life and film.

Admittedly, the film has its flaws, which are magnified by its audacious experimental nature.

I was extremely disappointed. I have never written a bad review for a movie, but felt the need to for this one. It is arrogant and narcissistic. Perhaps I am wrong, but I would guess the director also stars in the movie.... why else would we listen to his ridiculous ramblings....?

Would never recommend!

This film allows the first time Jaglom viewer access to some of the director's best work, w/o the guessing usually involved in exporing an artist for the firsts time. A must for anyone serious about film.
