Voyeur, The

Synopsis
The film is intended to challenge many widely held attitudes, beliefs and ideas. It examines questions of self-discovery, learning and understanding. A fashion model re-lives a day that changed her life. She listens to a radio story in which the narrator, Alfred, inhabits the Parisian art world of Monet, Lautrec, Degas and Bonnard. He too tells a story of self-discovery. The viewer explores a visual world of beauty shown through historical paintings of women and cinematic images.
