A much different orchid
7 August 2014 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

This is vastly different from the first Orchid, which has yourself questioning is this past of the first franchise, for this is a more refined tale about a girl becoming a woman, and discovering her sexual self, and the affect her beauty it has on other men. This is after making a bad choice in the wake of her very sick father (Skeritt, a sax player here, wasted). Left with much financial hardship, she's propositioned by a headmistress, excellently played by the late great Hughes, a real wicked so and so who runs an elite bordello, than caters for some weird tastes, as you'll see. The film runs high on nudity and it's quiet delicious, some really tasty girls on show, (Dominique the hottest) and this movie does have class, and is quite dramatic, specially as how Siesmasko wants to leave the business, where Hughes is intent on snatching her back. Too the black wig donning beauty has fallen in love with a young client, who if you can believe is a virgin. We are talking about Brendon Fraser here. The period and the way the film is shot is none short of excellent and beauty, and some of Blue's (Siesmasko's) clients are nasty, but in the end, the film has you asking what's the purpose of it. Really one answer there: to get you off. All performances are good, but it's Hughes's as that brutal Madam, that stays with you. The film really has some weird out scenes, like Dominique doing a sit and slow strip show for Blue's benefit, where in the back playing mutely on a t.v. in the b.g. is a pornographic cartoon. The little scene with Dominique getting done by a hunk in a steam room, where she catches Blue discreetly spying was hot. Though really there were quite boring stretches in this, that scene with Blue being dominated by her first client in that blue room was ridiculous. Another scene later on in the flick, has three of the girls totally nude standing, where a hession bag is put on a girl's head standing middle. To me and in many other scenes, they're just pointless, the norm with King's films. A few people will find this film a bore, some scenes testing their patience. Milk it for what it's work, an erotic adult pic, hiding under the facade of an adult drama, where I'm not bought but titillated.
