Venus in Fur turns the classic power struggle between man and woman on its head. Thomas is a beleaguered playwright, looking for an actress to play the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. Vanda, who oddly enough has the same name as the play’s leading role, is a desperate actress who shows up to audition for the role. Vanda arrives too late, she is vulgar and completely wrong for the role, but she turns out to have a strange command of the material. As the two work through the script, they blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination that only one of them can win.
