A philosophy professor finds himself interrogated by his wife, since she doesn’t trust the pedagogical approach of an educational project in which the man discusses literature with his female students. The professor’s theory will progressively turn practical, to the point it turns into an exercise on seduction.
The Academy of the Muses is a unique experience that questions, balances, and confronts life and experience, art and love, seduction and desire. These topics are crossed by language, that thing we’re made and remain prisoners of: words. The sensitive close-ups of those women contrast the more rational view of the man, a professor who seduces his students and makes them fall in love with him. The film builds a perfect harmony, a melody that weaves reflections by showing faces and gestures, where reality is interceded by these crystals that are occasionally rainy, or sunny. Master Guerín seduces us again, melting life and art into an unforgettable film. MG
