Surprisingly good film
2 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I went into this movie with the preconceived notion that it was a sleazy soft-core type production.

Instead, it turned out to be a decent comedy (Its genre is listed as "Drama", but that's a bit of a misnomer). It's a mostly light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek look at the porn industry from the unique perspective of a dedicated make-up artist trying her best to do her job under difficult circumstances.

There were some genuinely funny moments and even a couple of moments where the film tried to be a bit heartfelt, but came across as hammy.

People looking at this title solely for titillation will be severely disappointed as this is not even remotely pornographic. There is only brief, non-sexual nudity and one instance of a woman moaning (loudly) off-screen, but in a humorous context.

Everyone else, approaching it with an open mind might be pleasantly surprised with what they get.
