The myth of Venus-Aphrodite-Ishtar. There are many myths. The film at times seems not to follow the myth, but the myth is here. An erotic poetic film.
"[VENUS] represents a significant advance for deGrasse. He breaks with the narrative structure of his former films, and enters a realm hitherto inhabited by Anger and Markopoulos; that is, Myth." - Lenny Lipton, Berkeley Barb
VENUS is not like my other films.
