Storyline

In a green leotard with tight-fitting green cap, an actor shows us the life of a male mantis: with forelegs held as if praying. She demonstrates how the mantis can move its head almost 180 degrees and change colors to camouflage. The mantis approaches his mate, a cannibal, but that doesn't scare the male, whose sex drive trumps good sense. He approaches, mounts and penetrates: she turns her head and snatches off his head, as he keeps copulating. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Green Porno (2008)

In 2008 Isabella Rossellini got to display her fascination with insects by creating eight short films that show us how they have sex. You might be asking who wants to know about insects and their sex lives as I certainly didn't want to learn about it but as it would turn out, these eight films are quite funny, weird, surreal and at times downright smart in their imagination. Rossellini wrote all eight shorts, co-directed them and also plays the insect in each. There's some vivid colors here, strange cinematography and just an overall nice feel to each of them. Running anywhere from a minute to two, this series is certain unique in not only the visual style but in the way the stories are told. The actress dresses in the bug outfits and narrates her action, which usually shows the way the creatures have sex and reproduce. Doesn't sound like your cup of tea? Just watch one of the films and you'll be hooked.

Green Porno: Mantis (2008)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

The good ol' praying mantis takes the spotlight here as he can nearly turn his head completely around, change color and have a high sexuality. Of course this leads to the female eating him afterwards.
