“The Academy of the Muses” is a class held by professor Pint at the University of Barcelona. The course is supposed to be revolutionary, however the discussion about art and literature between the instructor and his students develops into love affairs. The wife of the instructor says “Love is just fabricated by literature” and she blames the course. Is this the lecture of the future of literature? Or is this love story?
José Luis Guerin always surprises us with the question “what is the film?”
“The Academy of the Muses” tried to cross the scenes in the classroom and the private life dramas of students and instructor. Director claims “this is definitely fiction”, however the relationships and emotions caught on camera are too real to believe this is a mere fiction film. Sensational, amusing, erotic and lovely fiction-documentary.
