Director Takako Imai's latest film is equal to sitting in front of a store window and staring at mannequins for nearly 90 minutes.
CANNES -- Director Takako Venus in Eros is not so much a movie as it is a museum display, as three largely stationary figures are clothed to represent different sides of beauty and sexuality. Twixt these prolonged mannequin scopings, filmmaker Takako Imai intercuts with a broad range of stirring landscape shots, which supposedly cast perspective on whatever is not happening.
