The best Lady
12 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

All histories have their internal logic, and all the films of Jess are reasonably illogical. In order to begin in this film of 1976 Jess he uses pseudonymous of Tawer Nero, in clear reference to Julio Perez Tabernero with whom he signs the script, that as it is custom it is not most important, or perhaps the direction, which is not clear. Anyway the presentation of the titles of credit with the images of a sensual performance of night club, and the appearance of the name of the director between the naked chests of the protagonist, yes is typically 'Francyne'. Lady Porno counts the eventful journeys of Sylvia, Lina Romay, the artist of night club that naked of principle to aim throughout the film, being its sex from all the possible angles, and trying positions that later the Ojete DE Lulú' will show in '. In this sense the title could have been sure because the real protagonist of the film is the sex of the protagonist: ' Is like a bunny that single hopes a caress to open itself to the tenderness.... and that will tender. Sylvia is invited to a celebration by a pair to participate in one orgies. After Demetra sexual of the loving triangle, once again with Mónica Swing in one of the vertex, one awakes and it finds to the assassinated pair. When he tries to escape is kidnapped by another even stranger who becomes crazy to undress it, to violate it and to lick sex to him, until his head arrives Janos Radeck, a cripple, ugly, and no hands that a allemande one speaks peculiar Spanish. This personage incarnated by Jess is a clear tribute to the Dr Strangelov, of the famous film of Stanley Kubrik ' Red Telephone... we flew towards Moscow ' , carried out by Peter Sellers. From this film of Stanley Jess also he takes his sense ironic and amused to narrate his history of spies and detectives between delirious kidnappings, violations and murders. In principle Lady Porno shows the typical erotics scenes of the films of Jess and it is not possible to be classified of pornographic, although it is for greater of 18 years. The films porno of Jess were rolled in the decade of the 80, and in the 70 they were of moaned teats, asses and of pleasing, although as Jess says, the border of the pornography is only question of the type of plane that you use, and ' franking' is 'Private' aside from all the well-known and aided to know. This one is a film in which Lina watches the camera and directly explains to the spectators its feelings and thoughts, with its sharp and worldly worse language . Of this Jess form it plays with the film within the film, like Vermeer paints a picture within the picture, both with the sincerity of the creative genius that knows that its work finalizes with the action of the spectator. In this sense the words of Radeck are revealing, in a scene where it is telephoning (red telephone) it says: ' I am 008, I call to him to explain the true death of Joe....... hatred to everybody... (leaving the accent German, watching the camera and taking off the glasses) you you think that I am an audacious international agent, are not idiot, see me kindly and they will realize that my true profession is the one of actor ' The film is solved like one ' road movié, with all in movement between persecutions, firings and deaths. The spectator can be died of laughter or remain exited by the explicit samples of meat and sex, until arriving at the éxtasis with the final scene, a disturbing scene in which Sylvia very shamelessly masturbate, and the camera looks for eager the fingers whipping clitoris for a shaved sex. Then if we discovered to Lady Porno, because in that naked scene nothing is simulated and everything gets dressed that obscenity that portrays our reality of repressed desires, to end a wink of complicity and a kiss to the spectator.
