Less well-known in America than his prolific peers, still-active porn (& latterly horror) maestro Alessandro Perrella/Alex Perry made a fine, small-scale XXX video in Music's Lessons. It develops its five characters better than usual for this genre.
The pidgin-English title MUSIC'S LESSONS is clearly the result of literal rather than colloquial translation, not unfortunately an acknowledgment of the difference in meaning between the proper English expression "music lessons" and a more philosophical/instructive meaning of "music's lessons".
Basically bald daddy Adam (over-worked Euro porn star Roberto Malone in shaved head mode) hires a handsome music teacher for his nubile young daughter Susan (cute Roxanne Hall). They're living with his late wife's sex bomb of a sister Lori (Cindy Scorsese, no relation of course to America's most overrated helmer). So what ensues has little to do with music and more to do with porn's natural inclination to exploit the natural urges of horny folks placed in close proximity (cf., 1972 porn opus THE ELEVATOR).
It isn't too far into the first reel before Lori has seduced her brother-in-law, in a fairly arousing scene beginning with her masturbating in the shower. This tinge of incest is a hint that the video will be more closely aligned to the softcore genre popularized by Salvatore Samperi of "sins in the family" bent, rather than the more macrocosmic XXX efforts of D'Amato or Luca Damiano.
Hakan Serbes, he of the broken nose and big cock, portrays Paul, the music teacher instructing Susan on the piano. Her métier is elsewhere: before you can say "Bonnie and Clyde", we have Susan playing her tenor sax and masturbating with it -the attached mouthpiece fitting handily into her vagina. Clearly this is the money scene, the type of kinkiness that makes Euro porn exportable in the face of so much Chatsworth-generated Yankee competition.
Susan gets it on with Paul in a well-photographed underwater scene in their swimming pool. This is amplified by a nice touch of the action being visible from inside the house through a glass window showing the bottom of the pool, allowing Lori to watch and masturbate in response. Their Black servant Tom (guest star from America Julian St. Croix) is nearby and kindly services Lori for some mixed combo action.
Arriving home, daddy Adam pulls a gun on Paul, displeased at finding him deflowering his daughter. Lori saves our hero, declaring her undying love for him (no XXX evidence of which has yet to be presented). Surprisingly, Adam just walks away, a broken man.
Susan visits Paul next, in a very sexy black dress, and interrupts his playing the guitar with another humping session. As is his wont, Serbes delivers a copious money shot.
An uptight dinner party for the trio (Adam is gone) results in troilism, with both women working on Paul's package at once, plus lesbian sex as well for more "all in the family" thematics. Naturally Tom joins in for a foursome, his presence a necessity for Hall going the double penetration route. Money shots = The End.
Hall is letdown by makeup lady Christine Leroy in this opus, as her backside for the payoff d.p. scene is covered in unsightly pimples. Other than this glaring gaffe, the video does a good job of mixing and matching the close-knit cast.
Despite the detail mentioned above, Hall, who looks like a young Mary-Louise Parker, is a turn-on as always, and Scorsese gives her a run for the money in the humping department.
Credits on the packaging are garbled, listing Laura Palmer and Penelope in the cast rather than Hall, and I'm trying to fix this in IMDb. The credits on screen are correct, however.
