The most artistic porn movie, by far
18 December 2005 | by the_maoSee all my reviews

This is the best of best, or the less pathetic porn movie (that depends on your view).

It is so good that precisely the only flaw point in the whole movie are the unnecessary long hardcore scenes, surely made by pressure from the producers.

This movie has little of everything, scify, fantasy, sexual dreams, drama, comedy, good shows, good photography, good acting, amateur acting, low budget look, exceptional atmosphere, some very high stetics points, lots of psychological and conceptual ideas, etc.

The ending of the story is also a very high point. One of the best endings that I have seen on cinema.

In brief, if you like art get this movie, cut all the unnecessary hardcore out, and you will get a little gem.
