The bishop asks him to visit an eccentric artist prone to sexual depictions and requests that he voluntarily withdraw a controversial work call “Crucified Venus” from his show. The minister, who considers himself a progressive, is shocked at the amoral atmosphere surrounding the painter, his wife, and the three models living at his estate. The minister’s wife is troubled also, and has to deal with latent sexual urges while trying to remain loyal to her husband.
Plot: In 1930s Australia, Anglican clergyman Anthony Campion and his prim wife, Estella, are asked to visit noted painter Norman Lindsay, whose planned contribution to an international art exhibit is considered blasphemous. While Campion and Lindsay debate, Estella finds herself drawn to the three beautiful models sitting for the painter’s current work, freethinking Sheela, sensual Pru and virginal Giddy.

One hell of a first date movie!
I knew nothing about this movie, but offered to accompany a woman I had known for some time, but had never been on more than vaguely friendly terms. I was not prepared for the charm, playfulness, joy and raw sensuality that this film captured. Sam Neill is the ultimate sensualist, yet indulges his children’s fancies with innocent abandon. Hugh Grant is a likable doofus, and he is far outpaced by Tara Fitzgerald’s acceptance of the pleasures of the flesh. In many ways, this couple reminded me of Brad & Janet in “Rocky Horror” – the man is either unable or too clueless to accept the sensual awakening that his companion does. Thus, I was pleased at my date’s choice of film, and any discomfort of my own at being seduced by the screen on a first date soon passed from my date’s reactions to the sexy scenes. On the anniversary of that date, I paid the outrageous price of $59.95 for a VHS copy, and the repeat viewings were as pleasant as th first. We later married, and this was her idea, too.
P.S.: I recommend “The Advocate” for those who like “Sirens”.
P.P.S.: I agree for the most part with Eamon Buchanan’s comments, but, the models were “painted”in the nude, not “painting”, and it was the Anglican church that was upset, not the Catholic (the Campions could not have been married if they were Catholic).
Stunning Cinematography and Beautiful Bodies !!!
This is supposed to be a comedy but I found myself transfixed by the stunning cinematography and beautiful bodies more than anything else. Sam Neill’s bevy of beautiful nude models, headed by Elle Macpherson, nearly steal the show. Hugh Grant is surprisingly convincing in his role as the prudish minister and Tara Fitzgerald is equally convincing as his almost-as-prudish wife. The are a few funny moments in this film involving the models’ interactions with Grant and Fitzgerald.
