A set of three small (erotic) stories by three different directors. First, “The Hand”, by Kar Wai Wong. An interesting story, although it is not that erotic. It is mostly a Drama. Then, “Equilibrium”, by Steven Soderbergh is a little more erotic, but instead we have a Comedy. The story is great. I voted 7 in 10 for the set, but if it was only for Soderbergh story I might vote higher. In this story there is a small view of a woman nude (the first does not contain any, and can still be erotic). Finally, “The Dangerous Thread of Things” by Michelangelo Antonioni is a strange story. Well, sorry, I can not find a story on this. At least not one with a beginning and an end. Probably I was distracted by the girls and boobs, and missed some detail. But I think that directing a movie is, first of all, telling a story, and if you at the end are unable to tell any, then the movie is shit. Yes, Luisa Ranieri is sexy and hot. But that does not make this an interesting movie. So, probably the more erotic, because of the nudes, but the less interesting one.
If at first this (Mexican) movie can seems an Erotic movie, it is much more than that. You can start suspecting that if you notice the classification as a Drama movie, and later, when you start wondering why an erotic movie would have a 7.7 classification at IMDB.
No, not because of the boobies (there aren’t that many) or the cunts (not so many, too). But because of the message the movie passes. You won’t understand it fully until the end (or at least, I did not). The way the narrator interrupts the movie to say something, and the fact that he doesn’t say, always, relevant things to the movie, makes it kind of harder to understand the real reason for the way the movie rolls.
If you do not get easily shocked with sex talk, and some nudity, then probably you will like to watch the movie and, and the end, it will make you think about (yours) live.
A drama about a Nymphomaniac that does sex with strangers without any pleasure. A boy gets in love with her and helps her to cure herself. Although erotic, this movie has some interesting and educational points of view. Namely the fact that there are people with different kinds of psychological diseases (not necessarily nymphomaniacs), that might make them do strange or stupid things, but that in most cases can be cured with love.
Other than this aspect, Christina Lindberg was very cute in 1973, and the movie presents her in her full glory.
From time to time I find a French erotic movie, and I need to watch it. They are different from what people usually call pornography. Here you don’t have sex, you have erotism. In this case, it is not properly a movie, but a sequence of four stories (the four Contes Immoraux), that include two woman/man story, one woman masturbation story, and a lesbian story. It also includes quite references to religion (Catholic), and priests, and pope. So, if you are easily scandalized with priests or the pope performing sex, don’t watch the movie. Although I did not like equally the four stories, I voted 7/10 at IMDB.
This is yet another movie directed by Tinto Brass. Classified as comedy, it is also erotic (easy to notice with the screenshot above). The story is simple: how people deal with virginity before wedding. Not much more to comment. Yeah, Monella is cute.
Yesterday night I watched ‘Cheeky!‘, the English dubbed version of the original italian movie Trasgredire.
As you might guess from the poster at the right, the movie is full of nice girls, without clothes. Given that, I will try not to comment on the sexy or erotic side of the movie.
Yes, I should have said that before. Although the first two classifiers in IMDB are Comedy and Drama, the first classifier should be Erotic. Yes, the movie is not pornography (there are a few penis, but no real sex is shown), it is mostly erotic.
Nevertheless, Cheeky has a better story and final conclusion than other winning movies, like Lost in Translation.
Today afternoon I watched this movie. After talking with a friend about it, he said: do not tell anyone you watched that movie. Oh well. What is the problem of saying I was watching a drama erotic movie, originally French, now dubbed? The truth is that I did not understand the message. In fact, I read some comments on IMDB about the movie, some of them trying to explain the idea of the movie, but I didn’t get it. I just watched it until the end because Corinne Clery is very beautiful. The story sucks. It is not as erotic as it could be without some violence, some less orgies, some more good sense. Now, the good point: after watching it I can skip it next time I am searching for a movie.
This movie (IMDB Link) is the strangest movie I ever seen. Well, maybe not the stranges, but it was quite strange. The worst thing is that I am almost sure I did not understand the real idea of the film. But, did I told already this was a strange film?
Oh, yeah, it includes sex, lesbians, and strange things. Also, it wasn’t subtitled and that makes it harder to understand. So, it was strange.
