Proof

( 1 )

Overview

Jocelyn Moorhouse's feature-film debut is a jet-black comedy starring Hugo Weaving as Martin, a paranoid blind man, made so because he is convinced that his mother, when he was a child, lied to him about the sights she described to him. As an adult, Martin is reclusive and ill-tempered. Perversely, Martin is also a photographer -- he takes the pictures, has them developed, asks friends to describe the pictures to him, and then labels them in Braille to make sure no one is tricking him. His housekeeper, Celia ...

Overview

Jocelyn Moorhouse's feature-film debut is a jet-black comedy starring Hugo Weaving as Martin, a paranoid blind man, made so because he is convinced that his mother, when he was a child, lied to him about the sights she described to him. As an adult, Martin is reclusive and ill-tempered. Perversely, Martin is also a photographer -- he takes the pictures, has them developed, asks friends to describe the pictures to him, and then labels them in Braille to make sure no one is tricking him. His housekeeper, Celia (Genevieve Picot), is also a photographer. Obsessed with Martin, she papers the walls of her home with pictures of him. But this obsession doesn't carry through to their relationship, which is a far from cordial one -- Celia torments Martin and Martin humiliates her. One day at a restaurant, after a nasty confrontation with a waitress who ignores him, Martin makes friends with the dishwasher, Andy (Russell Crowe). Martin invites him home to describe his photographs to him. Back at Martin's home, Andy meets Celia and he immediately falls in love with her. Jealous of Andy, Celia seduces him in an effort to discredit Andy with Martin and drive Martin into her arms.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Australian director/screenwriter Jocelyn Moorhouse made her feature-film debut with this brooding, sardonic, sometimes hilarious story of friendship, betrayal, love, and deception. It revolves around a blind hermit of a photographer (Hugo Weaving) who takes pictures as "proof" of reality. He is involved in a love-torment relationship with his housekeeper (Genevieve Picot). Their life changes when he makes friends with a dishwasher (Russell Crowe). It's a love triangle with a few extra twists of spice and spite. Proof is one of those films whose enjoyment is a matter of taste, as it's balanced between mockery and insight. Moorhouse came to Hollywood on the strength of this debut and directed the blander How to Make an American Quilt.
