This rare portrait of Balthus offers genuine insight into a controversial artist's life and constructive process. To start with, the pedagogical interviews with distinguished art critics Jean Leymarie and Jean Clair are intercut with superb photos that tutorial you through the artist's perverse yet oddly magical world. Interviews with members of Balthus's family, in particular, his sons Stanislaus and Taddei, and his first wife Antoinette de Watteville, are beautifully subtle, highly revealing psychological studies in sadomasochism. Antoinette, for example, appears as an old girl with still vivid memories of her ex-husband's poor temper, how she posed for him as a 16 year old beauty, and how they fled Paris when the Nazis invaded France during WW2. Stanislaus evokes the threat his father made of cutting off his thumbs if he ever took up painting while Taddei recalls never having been invited into his popular father's atelier. An intriguing visit to the Louvre finds Balthus quietly insulting his mates while studying a leopard by Pisanello, a fresh source of inspiration for his recent painting.François Rouan, French painter and Balthus disciple, describes in no uncertain terms the painter's obsession with adolescent women that, while thoroughly hands off (Balthus is not a pedophile), remains invariably linked to time and the passing of physical beauty into decay and death. The essence of Balthus's art, Rouan argues, is sexual and driven by the need to capture the fleeting moment and preserve it on canvas in an activity properly doomed from the start.A convincing situation is made for Balthus's flight from the madness that destroyed his close mate Antonin Artaud, and how the experience shaped his mature, more spiritually focused, work. In a haunting passage of genuine emotion, we catch a glimpse of the love between Balthus and his wife, Setsuko, as they contemplate one of the master's works in progress in his studio and later, at the Grand Chalet, when the artist reads a quotation from Horace as his wife traverses a narrow hallway into sunlight. The remarkable thing is that none of this comes off as faked or saccharine in director Pettigrew's hands and serves to underscore a controversial painter's easy humanity.Shot in Super 16 over 12 months in the Swiss Alps, we receive to visit Balthus's studio where he explains his typical working day and watch in fascination as he goes through the gestures of monitoring the work in progress with the support of a hand mirror and long spells of nicotine-fueled meditations. His patient Japanese wife assists him in his work by grinding down and mixing the pigments with oil to make the artist's special acrylic-free palette.What remains lingering in the mind, however, is the beauty of the movie itself, the spellbinding, almost transcendent, moments of seasonal change from green summer mountains to wind-swept English moors to jaw-dropping Italian frescoes bathed in autumnal light to fog-heavy winter meadows that create up Balthus's intimate world.This rare cinematic quality allied to a subtle psychological intelligence and well-measured doses of art commentary is what makes 'Balthus Through the Looking Glass' a deeply satisfying movie to watch and a globe away from the flat-footed informational art doc.
