When she's not directing same sex videos or long-running series, Nica Noelle excels at Adult versions of familiar screen stories -not the horrible parodies that have ruined storyline porn of late but rather original narratives using classics for inspiration.
This one has a relatively obscure starting point, the Johnny Depp movie Don Juan DeMarco that featured one of Brando's final performances as his shrink and was merely an okay (in its own time disappointing) diversion. Nica cast Rocco Reed as the hero Rocco, who insists his real name is Don Juan, "but you can call me Don" he quips to his shrink Victoria Blue.
Flashback shows his romantic side, set outdoors as he brings a flower to dreamy-eyed blonde Dia Zerva and easily seduces her. He quotes from "The Little Prince" and while no Johnny Depp (I belabor the obvious) Reed does establish an interesting character personality, in addition to his steady prowess in the explicit humping department.
This opening porn sequence can best be described as pleasant, with Dia wearing a big smile on her face as she rides his cock, clad only in red high heels. She's a passionate and extremely natural performer - I wanted to see more of her and note that she's mainly performed in lesbian videos.
Victoria sums up Rocco/Don's situation: he picked up a woman and took advantage of her vulnerability (Dia was separated from her husband). Rocco defends himself and accuses the doc of jealousy. Victoria discusses the case with psychologist deLUXE (Nica's go-to lady for non-sex exposition scenes) and the fount of wisdom tells Vic she's being too judgmental.
Second sex vignette is a flashback of the case of Manuel Ferrara years ago with Victoria when she was young (played by lovely Tori Black, who has just enough resemblance to the older actress to make this sequence plausible). She wants to wait but boyfriend Ferrara talks her into having sex with him (VERY plausible). From some angles she resembles a young Penelope Cruz (circa JAMON, JAMON), and despite her inexperience she is not fazed by Manuel's huge dick (straining credibility), going down deep on it.
This is a very satisfying sex scene, with Manuel trotting out all his familiar gimmicks: fast- motion thrusting during intercourse, anilingus, fingering her ass during doggy-style humping and fingering her vagina while humping in the spoon position. Surprise is that he leaves her almost immediately after the money shot, saying "Got an appointment, baby". To say this scarred the future therapist is an understatement.
At his session a week later, Rocco tells Victoria of his latest "conquest". The fans know better, as he hooked up with the one and only Mz. Berlin, roughest and toughest (and among the sexiest) of Nica's stable of lesbian performers. She's dominant with a capital D throughout this segment, and the huge-busted fake redhead is highly arousing in a rare boy/girl outing.
My favorite moment is after stuffing her panties in his mouth half way through their humping she escalates her stream of sarcasm by telling Rocco: "All you are for me is a life support system for this dick!". After the eventual money shot, she sums up: "You're a nice distraction, you know, until a real man comes along". This turning the tables scene is priceless.
Rocco rejects Victoria's analysis of this episode proving that he's a narcissist, but doc thinks that he's made a breakthrough in his treatment.
I liked the finale, a sort of return of the repressed, as Manuel Ferrara shows up (just a touch grey at the temples) at Victoria's office. He has what sounds like a cock & bull story but it's true - his "appointment" long ago was to buy an engagement ring for Victoria, but on the way back he crashed his motorcycle and it took a full year to get his memory back. By that time Victoria moved away and he was unable to track her down.
She's not gullible but certainly wants to believe and after he presents her with the ring at long last there's a magical dissolve and the long-lost lovers are transported from her office to her bedroom for a patented Ferrara sex scene, replete with a reprise of the foot fetish action we saw Tori Black treated to.
This is an excellent climax to the movie, and highlighted by Victoria's sensitive in character murmuring during sex, not the usual porn-speak but appropriate material like "I missed you".
This happy ending worked for me, and I realized that unlike the Depp film, Nica's title forecast that her movie would not be about Don Juan but rather about his doctor. It gives me further evidence that in a less judgmental entertainment world she would be directing Lifetime Channel movies geared towards women rather than Adult Videos.
