On the whole, a disappointing episodic feature of seven shorts by women filmmakers, commissioned by German television. Perhaps the best parts are Ulrike Ottinger's Pride with Delphine Seyrig and Chantal Akerman's appropriately unassuming (though slight) Sloth. Maxi Cohen's Anger is certainly striking and provocative, but also highly questionable and exploitative; Laurence Gavron's Envy, Valie Export's Voluptuousness, and Helke Sander's Gluttony are relatively forgettable; and the worst of the lot, alas, is Bette Gordon's feeble Greed. Certainly this is worth seeing if you want to keep up with the work of these filmmakers, but don't go expecting any major revelations.
