Movie Summary

Michelangelo Antonioni , Steven Soderbergh , Wong Kar-wai
Released:
2004
Rating:
R
Eros is a 2004 anthology film featuring three short films from three acclaimed international directors-American Steven Soderbergh's Equilibrium, Italian Michelangelo Antonioni's The Dangerous Thread of Things, and legendary Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai's The Hand. Each film takes a unique approach to themes of eroticism in film, creating a comprehensive portrait of human sexuality. The Hand tells a melancholy tale about a tailor and the object of his eternal desire, an aging but still beautiful prostitute whose dresses he has passionately constructed for years. Equilibrium stars Robert Downey Jr. as a man seeing a psychiatrist because of a recurring dream where he plays a voyeur, witnessing arousing scenes through windows. The Dangerous Thread of Things examines a strained love triangle between a man, his wife, and a fleeting love interest at a beach resort. Eros is a must-see for fans of international film making, presenting three of contemporary cinema's most celebrated directors.

    What might have been a cinephile's wet dream turns out instead to be seductive, stimulating and sodden, in that order, in the three-chapter reflection on love and desire.
