Hilary Helstein's documentary As Seen Through These Eyes travels back through the annals of history to witness an unusual, rarely-discussed, and deeply moving phenomenon: that of the Holocaust victims who clung tightly to their own sanity - and, in some cases, saved their own lives - by engaging in the act of raw creation (art, in other words, as a form of psychological and spiritual liberation). Helstein reminds the audience that while international art celebrities such as Pablo Picasso painted widely-seen works that accomplished the same ends (consider, for instance, his Guernica) many hordes of others, interned in the camps, engaged in the very same remarkable process. Overall, Helstein touches on, and explores, many related subtopics: beginning with a reference to Hitler's own protests against the Austrian artistic establishment that rejected him, she then moves into a discussion of intra-Holocaust art as a method of "bearing witness," and then expostulates on the fact that many Gestapo militia and Holocaust architects actually refrained from exterminating some Jews because of the artistic instincts and works generated by those individuals. Subsequently, Helstein lapses into a discussion of the more ghastly functions that art served in the Holocaust, such as the use of symphonic music to drive the sounds of screams out of ghastly halls, and Nazi artists' attempts to catch the look of insane agony on victims' faces amid satanic medical experiments by Mengele and others. Throughout, the documentarian includes numerous cutaways to the artistic works created during modern history's darkest period, to illustrate and bring life to her various points and themes. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
French filmmaker Jean-Claude Brisseau once again explores the nexus of the body, the mind and the soul in this sensual drama. Sandrine (Carole Brana) has become vaguely dissatisfied with her life, but isn't fully aware of the depth of her ennui until she strikes up a conversation with stranger in the park who discusses his philosophy of the emotional dead end that traps so many in this day and age. Newly aware of the rut she's fallen in, Sandrine leaves behind her job and an unfulfilling relationship with her boyfriend before encountering Greg (Arnaud Binard), a psychiatrist who is an advocate of hypnotic therapy. Sandrine allows Greg to use his techniques to help her tap into the depth of her erotic desires, and when she meets Sophie (Lise Bellynck), Greg's former lover who is willing to share tales of her own sexual explorations, Sandrine embarks on an odyssey to embrace the outer limits of her carnal imagination. A L'aventure was the third film in a trilogy of erotic tales from Jean-Claude Brisseau, following Les Anges Exteminateurs (aka The Exterminating Angels) and Choses Secretes (aka Secret Things). ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
