Plot

Syd, a newly appointed assistant editor of Frame magazine, discovers that the woman living above her flat is none other than the talented yet enigmatic photographer Lucy Berliner. When the two of them meet, Syd gets acquainted with both Lucy's past work and her circle of flegmatic, junkie friends. Seeing a definite career opportunity, Syd encourages Lucy to shoot new pictures for her magazine. At the same time, a strong attraction starts to develop between them. As the photo assignment continues, both Syd and Lucy are forced to examine their own lives and loves.
 

Comments

Not much to complain about `High Art' is a small, intense movie about three women and their business relationships on the one hand, their love relationships on the other. The film hasn't much to say, there's just the question of how far can work influence love and the other way round, especially when art is involved? The pictures are cold and unfriendly, as are the photographs by the main character, Lucy Berliner. The three ladies act convincingly, it is not an easy job for them. On the whole, this is not something one might remember for quite some time but there is also not much to complain about.
