  • The Pornographer [2001]The Pornographer | DVD | (23/09/2002) from £5.99   |  Saving you £14.00 (233.72%)   |  RRP £19.99

    An art house movie that asks questions about the morality of art both on and off screen, The Pornographer is a hard-hitting yet strangely unmoving film. Very much a product of the French school of intellectual cinema, the filmmaker of the title is Jacques Laurent (played by Jean Pierre Leaud), a one-time director of adult films who, finding himself down on his luck, is forced to return to his old medium. Far from being a gaudy Boogie Nights style exposé of an unknown world, the film focuses on Laurent's inner turmoil and his rapidly disintegrating relationship with his wife, as well as his restored one with his son Joseph (Jeremie Renier). Director Betrend Bonello handles this material well, if overdoing the art house clichés a little, but the problem with the film (or for some its strong point) comes with the fairly hardcore sex scenes, presented as part of Laurent's movie. While intended to reflect the emptiness of the character's soul, it is hard to see past them as just an attention-grabbing device. Then again, can a film about pornography legitimately not feature sex? One suspects that this debate will run and run and, in its way, The Pornographer has much to say on the subject. On the DVD: The Pornographer's intended release fell foul of the BBFC, who objected to one particularly explicit scene, a continuing argument that provides much of the material for the DVD's extra features. There is a reproduction of the BFFC ruling, a statement in reply from Bonello (which demonstrate the similarities he shares with his fictional counterpart, certainly when it comes to a vision of erotica) and an excellent essay from critic Pierre Perrene. In addition there are biographies, the cinematic trailer and an option to view the film with or without English subtitles. Whatever the moral questions involved, Bonello's film is a visual treat and his stylish eye is well represented by this format. --Phil Udell

    Guillaume Gallienne the multi award-winning French theatre actor revisits his sexually confused youth in this flamboyant farce which has distinct shades of Pedro Almodovar. Gallienne unpicks his complicated love-hate relationship with his domineering mother who raised him more like a daughter than a son defining him as gay before he was even sure of his own sexuality. Years of therapy insecurity and self-loathing followed. Pointedly theatrical in style and full of strong comic set-pieces Me Myself and Mum is a warm-hearted crowd-pleaser. The 41-year-old Gallienne plays himself from school-age child to awkward adolescent to young man. He also doubles up in drag to play his own mother looking uncannily like Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie. Among those helping him on the way to self discovery is Diane Kruger’s stern German health-spa nurse. It won in five categories in the French Oscars the Césars including best film and also scored at the box office achieving more than three million admissions. Audiences everywhere have warmed to its charm and shamelessly sentimental allure.
