- Director: Bruce Weber
Striking imagery accompanied by sweet jazz.
Broken Noses is the story of Andy Minsker, an attractive lightweight boxer, who trains a group of kids in Oregon - he really is just a kid himself and as lovely as a man can be - polite, decent and utterly charming.
Weber, the photographer, famed for his homoeroticism...does not disappoint.
It's not groundbreaking - just interesting to see the still eye converting to movement.
It is a lovely, endearing film (and subject).
A documentary, photographed in black-and-white, with a hip jazz soundtrack, looks at the boys and coach of a small but accomplished boxing club near Portland, Oregon. The film focuses on the coach, former Olympic contender and pro athlete Andy Minsker, and tells not only the story of his devotion to his young athletes, but hints at childhood obsticles which may have prompted Minsker, as an adult, to give his students guidance, support and love with such enthuasism and dedication.
