POST COITUM /
Slovakian director Juraj Jakubisko is quoted as saying that the meaning of filmmaking is having the audience experience more miracles than they could expect in real life. While watching POST COITUM, one is reminded of this maxim, since the film – which employs numerous optical tricks – is one long progression of sexual encounters, a vulgarized and modernized variant on Arthur Schnitzler’s drama of indifference: everyone changes partners like other people change underwear, and still don’t find anything but their own emptiness. With actor Franco Nero as a photographic artist whose relationship to his models is not strictly professional, Jakubisko also satirizes his own profession.
