Storyline

Three unrelated stories. The first is about a dissatisfied, hurtful couple clinging together to spite each other rather than take the risk of finding a relationship. The second story consists of a series of female clients at a psychologist's office that each tell their bitter and sad stories of how they developed their attitudes towards men or sex in general. The final story is a day in the life of a model that can't seem to get past posing for the men's magazine circuit, the daily abuse she deals with, her feelings of enslavement, and the impact upon her sanity.

Decent Damiano Flick
29 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is a compilation of three non-connected stories. Each story has a dark feel and deals with loss and resentment. The three segments are: 'In The Beginning we are born', 'The Middle is called life' and 'In the End we die'. Odyssey is by legendary porn director, Gerard Damiano. It's not his best work but it has a lot to recommend it.

The first thing which struck me about this film is how long it took for a sex scene to take place, for example: The film starts with a lengthy dialogue scene which establishes the first story. This is unusual by todays standards as some porn films now contain nothing but sex! The sex scenes in the film are hot but tame by today's standards, there is not much penetration. There's some innovative sex scenes as you would expect from Damiano (e.g. there's a lot of fantasy sequences, an orgy sequence with the cast wearing studded leathers and a shaving scene).

The second thing which struck me about this film is the fantastic soundtrack. There's no cheesy lounge muzak or euro-pop used here. Most of the soundtrack features well produced, almost romantic sounding music and cool 70s funk. One sex scene also featured a tribal beat running through it.

The acting in this film is of a high standard. The actors deliver their lines with good timing and portray their characters convincingly. The film is dark. The characters lead troubled lives and the script does not hint that there's any hope. The film does contain some humour though. There's some witty lines exchanged and the last story contains a blackly comic ending.

This is a good quality, exceptionally well-made and written porn movie. Unfortunately it's not as good as some of Damiano's other films and it remains largely unseen and unknown, which is a shame.
