This is the true story of four very unusual people who met in Paris in 1931 and lived a decidedly decadent life until the threat of war drove them all back to America.
Hugo Guiler (Richard E. Grant), who later achieved some fame as a maker of experimental films, and his French writer wife Anais Nin (the exquisite Maria de Medeiros) befriend (and uultimately sponsor) the penniless, aspiring author Henry Miller (Fred Ward). Anais and Henry are totally permissive in attitude and behaviour, and this is depicted in graphic, and yet beautiful, detail by Golden Globe and Oscar nominated cinematographer Philippe Rousselot. The film comes very close to bordering on the pornographic, so if you are offended by sex, nudity and lesbianism, read no further. Director Philip Kaufman chooses to depict the relationship between Anais and Henry's wife June (a marvellously sultry performance by Uma Thurman)on a lesbian level, although Miss Nin later denied that there were any sexual relations between her and June. This is all beside the antics (both literal and figurative) of the strange people the Guilers and the Wards befriended.
From a technical viewpoint, the attention to detail in costuming, make-up and set design must make this one of the best films to reach the screen, with a rich and evocative music score to complement the visual.
