Eros (2004)

Luisa Ranieri

Luisa Ranieri

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.

Y tu mamá también (2001)

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.

Contes Immoraux (1974)

Contes Immouraux

Contes Immouraux

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.
