La Academia de las Musas

A university professor teaches a class on the Muse in art and literature, while actualizing some of his teachings with his (mostly female) students, in this new film from José Luis Guerín. Part relationship drama, part intellectual discourse, the film centers on a philology professor –played by actual philology professor Raffaele Pinto– and the women surrounding him: his wife and students. But as each and every player engages in debates –concerning, among other things, art, the artist’s perspective, and male-female dynamics– the film’s narrative begins to evolve and its character dynamics become increasingly complex.
