A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.
Four new Xciting true stories from Miranda Forbes. 1. Business Trip: Erica meets a couple at a hotel on a business trip. They have a threesome. 2. The Painting: Husband invites a young male... See full summary »
This review is for the UK DVD release of Volume 1 which is issued on three DVDs. Each disc contains four features. Disc 1 contains The Painting, The Business Trip, Midnight Showing and Private Dance. Disc 2 contains A Fashion Affair, Lady Luck, A Model Affair and Virtual Vixen. Disc 3 has Through an Open Window, Coming Clean, Watching Vanessa and The Partners.
Each feature starts with Jaqueline Stone (Ava Fabian) in a state of undress opening and then reading a letter detailing the exploits to come. These exploits invariably consist of lots of undressing and, more often than not, lots of unconvincing simulated sex. There are attempts at some sort of plot but they all lead to the inevitable conclusion of great sex. The usual combinations are given an airing - boy/girl, girl/girl and boy/girl/girl.
It is quite obvious that the sex and nudity have priority while the acting takes a rather distant back seat. With each episode running for only 25 minutes there really isn't much time to develop characters or personalities. The two worst aspects though are the camera direction and the music. When the sex action starts the camera takes on a life of its own, zooming here, panning there, swooping everywhere, and the music is just plain annoying.
It is difficult to work up any great enthusiasm for this series. The episodes have much of a sameness about them despite the plots and the number of cast involved. The studio and distributors also seem to lack any enthusiasm because no more volumes have so far been released in the UK - 3 stars.
