Simple, naturalistic porn
24 May 2011 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Unsung auteur Maxime Debest (he's not, despite the transliterated pun of his nom de film) hit upon a winning formula with the in-your-face titled PHALLUS STORY, a French hardcore porn film that is refreshingly unpretentious.

He strikes a welcome naturalism, as familiar porn heroine Cathy Stewart/Grenier wanders around outside during the opening reel, finding couples copulating in the shrubbery everywhere she looks.

It isn't an "Alice in Wonderland" mood, but rather a parallel world that looks deceptively like our own, except that this being porn everyone is irremediably horny. Instead of beating around the bush, so to speak, Debest simply posits that sex is the most natural thing humans can do, anywhere, anytime. And that fantasy is what porn is all about.

As the film progresses, there are sex scenes indoors, with various groupings and co-minglings of the main characters, but it is this opening reel impression of people making love everywhere you look in the Great Outdoors that lingers. Stewart is attractive and enthusiastic in her role, though the sex tends to be of the mechanical nature one finds in these quickie productions.

Other femmes are okay, and the male cast is, as the title suggests, largely subjugated to their prime appendages in a clearly cock-centric visual format. Shot on film, the picture provides atmosphere lacking from the subsequent switch to cheapie video lensing.
