Proteus is set in 1735 on a prison island off the coast of South Africa. Two prisoners, one Dutch the other Hottentot, are attracted to one another first physically and then emotionally. The director John Greyson attempts to argue that this kind of love affair transcends time and place. In spite of its 18th century time frame, there is a truck, 1960s style manual typewriters, and occasionally modern dress. The photography is splendid, and the story line compelling. If you expect to see homoerotic lovemaking, this is not the movie. The love scenes are the weakest part of the movie.
