Tasteless but arousing porn version by Luca Damiano
This porno version of SNOW WHITE has had amazing staying power -it currently ranks some 15 years after its release among the best-selling adult DVDs on the U.S. market.
Reason is top-quality production values, a truly beautiful XXX actress as the heroine, and enough kinkiness, involving the dwarf actors, to satisfy the jaded tastes of porn fans.
Luca Damiano was an expert at lavishly produced Euro porn in the '90s. NOTE: The moronic IMDb commenter from Kentucky who insists on misidentifying films he's barely watched has called this and X HAMLET Joe D'Amato movies, when the credits clearly give Luca the honor, Joe having merely served as 2nd unit director.
The point to be made is that Luca was committed to porn, whereas D'Amato, analogous to Joe Sarno, toiled away making dozens & dozens of XXX films and videos under protest when the marketplace shifted in tastes. His heart wasn't in it, and it shows in the mechanical results. Damiano on the other hand, having taking his nom de film from the greatest of all porn directors, Gerard, tried to make real movies, with quality costumes, storyline, top talent and attractive sets & locations.
Their quality is variable (WHORE HOUSE with Milly D'Abbraccio an example of low-quality quickie), but at his best Luca delivered the masturbatory goods. Beyond SNOW WHITE, I recommend his X HAMLET, ORIENT EXPRESS (shot atmospherically on a moving train), MARCO POLO, CLAUSURA (nuns epic), DECAMERON TALES and especially EROTIC ADVENTURES OF RED RIDING HOOD.
