Confessions of a Young American Housewife
30 May 2010 | by (The Divided States of Earth) – See all my reviews

Taken less seriously and not looking at the plot as a whole it is almost understandable if it gets dismissed as primarily a soft porno hiding in the cloak of a melodrama, since the individual scenes are structured like cliché set-ups for porn scenes.

But WOAH! This turned out to be so much more captivating and thoughtfully put together than the first minutes and the sleazy 70's porno look suggested. The plot develops naturally and builds-up to reveal what turns out to be the movie's main theme. What begins as a movie about a conservative, middle-aged mom opening up to new sexual experiences through the initiative of her daughter ends up as a movie about a mother/daughter relationship with unspoken sexual tensions.

And there is something to be said about how certain colors stick out on that sleazy 70's porno footage which can work artistic wonders on dames wearing colorful makeup typical of that decade as can be witnessed in 'Confessions of a Young American Housewife'...

I'm giving this 8 out of 10 young housewives getting upstaged among her swinger friends by her still juicy mother who everyone wants to feel up and who has the desire to be felt up but is too uptight (for now)
