Storyline

David Huxley, low-born self-made legal counsel at the US embassy in Budapest, may expect his career to be boosted by his impending marriage to Tish, daughter of old money tycoon and ambassador to Hungary Harrington. But when the happy couple spends a night of hot sex at a spa, including a threesome with an exhibitionist model, they are secretly filmed, and the suspect is found murdered in their hotel. To handle the blackmail, they venture into a sex club where porno movies are made. Tish volunteers to 'act' so David can snoop around, but that only gets them into even greater danger, which ultimately proves most deceptive. Written by KGF Vissers

Very Erotic, Amoral, Predictable, but Attractive Thriller
5 June 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Budapest, the ambitious diplomat and aspirant congressman of poor origin David Huxley (Johnathon Schaech) and his fiancée of wealthy and traditional family Tish Harrington (Lori Heuring) travel to a hotel in Alhambra to spend a weekend together before their marriage. In the hotel, they fantasize and have a threesome with the delicious model Risa (Zita Görög) as part of his bachelor party. When they return to their normal life, they are blackmailed with a porn video of their sexual encounter with Risa. David and Tish go to the pornographic underworld of Budapest trying to retrieve the tapes and avoid a scandal and damage in Tish's father and David's career.

I was surprised with "8 mm2", since I was expecting a garbage, but I found it very erotic, amoral, partially predictable, but also attractive thriller. The beginning does not develop the character of David and Tish as it should, but later the viewer begins to understand their motives. David's is clear, since he is ambitious, aiming to climb to a higher social position at any cost, therefore making the plot point in the conclusion of the story partially predictable. But Tish is the great character of his movie, since she is a much sexualized woman, who fantasizes her sexual life playing games with David, and entwined between her fear and curiosity and desire about the underworld of sex and pornography. Due to the strong sexual content and nudity, this movie is recommended for specific audiences. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "8 mm 2"
