Watch A Clip From Roman Polanski’s Venus In Fur

Roman Polanski’s latest film, Venus In Fur, is currently available on demand, and in theaters. IFC and Sundance Selects just released this new clip from the film.

Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) complains that no actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave. Thomas is about to leave the theater when actress Vanda (Seigner) bursts in, a whirlwind of erratic – and, it turns out, erotic – energy.
