Helmut Newton: Frames from the Edge

Helmut Newton: Frames from the Edge

A camera crew follows Helmut Newton, the fashion and ad photographer whose images of tall, blond, big-breasted women are part of the iconography of twentieth-century erotic fantasy. He's on the go from L.A., to Paris, to Monte-Carlo, to Berlin, where he was a youth until he escaped from the Nazis in 1936. We see him on shoots, interviewing models, and discussing his work. It's not art and it's not good taste, he tells students. We meet June, his Australian-born wife, whom he married in 1948. Three actresses talk about working with Newton and how posing is different from acting. A heart attack in 1973 helps Newton re-focus, resulting in more personal photographic projects.

STEFANY T (ag) wrote: Absolutely loved this movie!! I'm a movie fanatic and I can say it is very hard to impress me now and days so when I saw this movie I was left breathless. Amazing movie and it grabs you from beginning to end. I don't actually believe in the whole concept but you have to be open to the movie and acknowledge how they put everything together. I have recommended this movie to all my friends and they have all loved it as well.

Hugo G (ru) wrote: Very good acting from Jane Fonda and Felicity Hoffman, but it was Lindsay Lohan who proved to be a great performer. The story became kind of tiring at the end, but overall it was very entertaining and dramatic.

Jen T (ag) wrote: Full of noise with very little substance. On the background: with so much exciting material in the 60s and 70s this film only takes a meagre glimpse of the politics, history, youth, music, and media. On the foreground: our protagonist has no purposes or goals or beliefs beyond open sexual relationships (when they suit her, one might add). It also leaves no room for the supporting characters as they shy away next to the heroine's frequent and stunning nakedness. Where the film fails miserably is that pieces of Uschi's memories do not invite audiences to be emotionally involved. They were mere events, things she had done, most of the time simply for spontaneous fun. There are a few failed attempts to portray her wildness, but they instead display her stupidity (e.g., she insists on smuggling drugs yet it's her partner who meets and wins the confrontation). By the end of the film - of moving from one group to another, mingling with the "high society" of the rock 'n' roll, travelling in a caravan around half of the world, having a prince-like wedding in India, pregnancy, etc. - both the heroine and the audience are still none the wiser. The odd narratives only provides abrupt and surprising statements like when she muses about "the two men I loved most". Huh? Which two? Since when???Her happiness is built on drugs and sexual pleasure. Her tears are shallow and unmoving. There seems to be no connection between her and any other characters except for the one she's currently sleeping with. (I don't even know what her best friend looks like as she speaks hardly 3 words.) Even then the connection is vague and confusing. Undeniably other characters display stronger personality at times, but it's largely undermined by their inconsistent and implausible behaviour.The light is on but nobody's home - very much like our main character; perhaps in that sense this film isn't a total failure after all: it mirrors the character in itself.

John C (fr) wrote: Not by any means a bad movie, it has a good heart and a decent ensemble, but never quite maximizes its potential.

Eckhard S (it) wrote: Isabelle Adjani best movie! Brilliant!

FilmGrinder S (br) wrote: 72%"Time to go to the drug store and get your fit."-Billy (Clark Brandon)Crispin Glover's first, horray! Routine 80's teen sex romp, with plenty of female nudity. Also, I don't recommend going to Mexico to lose your virginity.
