Compilation of several comedic episodes with a twist from the show "Erotic Tales", all done by famous indie directors. In "The Dutch Master," a simple girl called Teresa is seduced by a painting of a 17th century rogue at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In ''Angela,'' an aging man who feels his life was less then sexually fulfilling meets a dominatrix. In ''The Waiting Room,'' a salacious middle-aged man is seduced by a gorgeous blonde in front of everyone.
It would have been more truthful to entitle this collection "Four Goofy Shorts by Four Established Indie-film Directors". There is certainly a constituency out there who would go for a collection of silly shorts by directors such as Ken Russell, Melvin Van Peebles, etc.
Instead, the title of this collection of shorts and the dreamy video boxcover photograph of Mira Sorvino are designed to hook the hapless seeker of erotic entertainment, who will, in fact, find little of that sort here. Mira Sorvino fans will be disappointed, in that respect. There are a few fleeting glimpses of the great Cynda Williams in the buff, but the comedic scenario will dampen any viewer's libido.
