Camera Buff


Time Out says

Fairly impressive account of an amateur movie-maker who progresses from home movies, via the factory film club, to documentaries of a more political kind. But in improving his technique and his status as a film-maker, he lays himself open to criticism and censorship from the local authorities, and so begins the ideological battle - artistic expression vs political oppression - of Kieslowski's satire. It's not as funny as some critics would have it, and the basic theme is hardly original in Eastern European cinema, but the evocation of the hero's passion for movies, and Stuhr's central performance, manage to make it intelligent entertainment.
