Secret Things – A Softcore Movie Worth Seeing.

Secret Things, French name – Choses Secretes, is the kind of movie one either loves or hates. I happened to be a lover. Even the fact that the movie was French with English sub titles did not dampen my enjoyment.

CAST
Coralie Revel – Nathalie
Sabrina Seyvecou – Sandrine
Roger Mirmont – Delacroix
Fabrice Deville – Christophe
Blandine Bury – Charlotte
Olivier Soler – Cadene

DIRECTOR
Jeanne-Claude Brisseau

THE PLOT
Roommates Nathalie (Coralie Revel) and Sandrine (Sabrina Seyvecou) compose a strategy to dispense sex strategically to manipulate men into submission for financial gain and advancement. They commence their plan at a large prestigious Paris brokerage house. After initial successes and rapid advancement, they meet their match in the company CEO, Christophe (Fabrice Deville) the handsome amoral son of the company’s founder.

THE STORY
A shapely woman reclines on a day bed. She is restless and she is NAKED. A spotlight seems to highlight her gyrations and machinations. She sits up and slips into high-heeled sandals. She leans back and puffs out her chest. She places one hand upon her breast and kneads her nipple. The hand moves down across her midriff to her sex and she massages it. Suddenly she stands up and deliberately struts across the hardwood floor. After a dozen or so purposeful steps, facing the camera, she lowers herself to her knees and bends back once again. The spotlight is still on her as she masturbates and as she masturbates, the camera pans right. After panning about ninety degrees, you start to see people sitting at tables and the more it pans, you realize you are in a nightclub and the woman is an exotic performer. The woman is Nathalie.

Nathalie and Sandrine a recently hired bartender were fired that night because Nathalie would not allow the owner to force Sandrine to sleep with a customer. Tossed out on the street with nowhere to go, Sandrine accepted Nathalie’s offer to spend the night. At her apartment, Nathalie urges Sandrine to loosen up after she admitted to admiring Nathalie’s nerve and lack of inhibitions.

Nathalie, with her dry humor and strong will, made Sandrine laugh and eventually coerced her to do in front of her what Nathalie had done in front of an audience. With that, the bond was sealed and plans were laid, based on Nathalie’s distorted view of love and sex, to manipulate all men and make a place in society for themselves. After the women’s initial successes and having compromised their boss Delacroix, (Roger Mirmont), their plan begins to devolve into a whirlpool of ruthlessness, unrequited love, group sex, lesbian sex, three-way sex, and masturbation, in which the only way out appears to be suicide or murder.

CONCLUSION

The highly charged erotic opening scene set the theme for the movie so well, that I was mesmerized for the rest of the movie. True nothing that came after, with the possible exception of an “Eyes Wide Shut” style orgy scene late in the movie, was quite as electric but I still enjoyed the movie immensely. You see Secret Things had a story. It had a plot. A good story, a good plot, and the overall acting was very good. Secret Things is the closest I have viewed to a commercially viable, mainstream, erotic movie.

The movie Secret Things is appropriately named. The storyline is structured on secrets, deception and the duplicitous side of human nature. It is a reflection of a murky, lascivious side of life, which rarely is truly, captured on film. In fact the movie seemed to touch on one form or another, at one point or another, on all of ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’ – pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed and sloth, obviously a perfect sinister erotic movie.

Erotica Gone Wild – Emanuelle in America

This movie is only for the open minded. Expect nudity aplenty along with some explicit sex, bestiality, even simulated snuff film footage.

Movie Poster

I have probably watched, under duress I might add, about a dozen Emmanuelle/Emanuelle movies, out the approximately two dozen or so available movies, (talk about sequels) so for those of you not familiar, a little background is in order. After seeing so many of these movies, I have come to the conclusion that name Emmanuelle means beautiful nymph in French. It is obvious because, in each of these movies, the only common denominator is a gorgeous woman of the world, who sleeps around, a lot.

Ok, I was kidding. The movies have a couple other common denominators, lousy plots and plenty T & A, so it is obvious that these movies were made for one reason and one reason only (other than to make money), to turn people, including me, on, so if you’re looking for brainfood you have mistakenly pushed the eye candy button.

Now, I know you are all dying to know why I said Emmanuelle/Emanuelle. Can you guess? I’ll give you a hint. Franco/Italio. Get it? What have I got to do? Draw you a picture. The first Emmanuelle movies were made in France and it took two years to get over the Alps to Italy and when it did they said ‘mama mia buenvideo’ or something like, that and started making Emanuelle movies, which means in Italian – beautiful fallen angel. As you have now, probably figured out, Emanuelle in America is of the Italio, fallen angel persuasion.

Emanuelle in America

As I said, I have probably viewed a dozen or so of these movies but Emanuelle in America was truly a surprise for me. There were parts in this film that made even me, blush. I didn’t say I closed my eyes or turned my head. I blushed. In fact, I grabbed the remote and went over the parts that made me blush so I could blush a few more times.

####WARNING####

If you are the kind of person who doesn’t like to read about SEX and are easily embarassed or offended and wish you hadn‘t started reading this crazy review about this crazy movie, I understand, I’m the same way, sort of, so go with my blessing. Just give me a Most Helpful before you do and I’ll say a prayer for you and review a Disney movie in the future.

Back to the diehards. Emanuelle in America is one kinky, MF (morbid flick) which is not surprising since it was directed by Joe D’Amato, who is notorious for sex and gore.

PLOT

In this movie, Emanuelle (Laura Gemser), is a “fashion photographer” (of nude women), photo journalist, investigative reporter (both undercover and above cover) and any other thing you can think of. After a preliminary scene where Emanuelle goes down on some guy with a gun that wants to kill her, she goes off to join some millionaire’s zodiac conceived concubine (Emanuelle‘s a Virgo). After bedding his right hand man, an interlude with two other naked girls in the pool and a lesbian scene in a sauna we are treated to a scene where a naked lady masturbates a horse. No really, I’m not kidding. While this is going on, Emanuelle is ostensibly taking voyeuristic photos with a miniature camera, embedded in a bracelet.

After she makes her getaway from the millionaires California compound, Emanuelle hooks up with a Duke? From Venice (Italy) who invites her the annual wingding he and his wife throw. After a manage a trios with the Duke and Duchess we have the shindig, which turns into a big orgy and of course our heroine is walking around the naked bodies, again taking pictures with the little camera, this time mounted in a tasteless costume jewelry necklace with an extra long chain, which is so obvious she may as well blurt out, “Hey, You mind if I take some fu*king pictures”. Here we get our first glimpse of hardcore as a woman performs fellatio.

Next our liberated mostly undercover trollop is off to a Caribbean island she heard about at the orgy, where the services of well endowed men (studs) are available (for sale) to wealthy women. The movie continues with her viewing and photographing more graphic sex, with her poorly hidden camera and even an investigation into the source of some snuff film footage, of which I will not go into.

What’s good

~ As usual Laura Gemser was lovely, though when she was fully dressed, her clothes seemed overly large on her. She must be tiny.

~ I must admit that I was intrigued rather than turned, off by the hardcore scenes. I was caught totally off guard, having never seen them in previous Emmanuelle/Emanuelle movies.

~ There was lots of nudity but except for Emanuelle with her Barbie Doll figure and the anatomically pleasing Duchess, few were exceptionally attractive.

What‘s not

~ Although Miss Gemser is shown entering into numerous intimate scenes, they all cut away before anything beside preliminaries are shown, (exception, the lesbian scenes).

~ For a professional undercover investigative photographer, Emanuelle was certainly obvious with her supposedly surreptitious photography, nor was her camera well hidden.

~ I may be wrong but some of the explicit sexual scenes in the movie looked, to me, like they were borrowed from other films. Oh well, who cares?

~ The story was weak and the ending was terrible but I’d watch it again!

~ In the scene where the kid had a gun to Emanuelle’s head, she didn’t appear to be the least bit nervous, let alone scared. Well, it was a bit laughable.

~ In fact, I guess you would have to say that overall the acting was weak but then who watches these movies for the acting.

~ Some of the cinematography and editing seemed weak as well. That means it looked like your home movies. (The quality not the subject matter {I hope})

Laura Gemser

CONCLUSION

When it comes to this version of Emanuelle, all you have to remember is Laura Gemser. For one hundred minutes we see Laura Gemser traipsing around the world mostly in profile. Now Gemser is a Eurasian beauty, no doubt, but not in profile. She, like another beauty, Heather Locklear do not photograph that well in profile. They kind of look like somebody stole the tip of their nose.

I must admit to some ambivalence regarding this film. On the one hand the film was fascinating, wondering what new kinky perversion D’Amato was going to throw at you next, as he pushed the envelope of decency, by tackling subjects that were taboo in polite society. Overall I enjoyed the film despite numerous flaws, so I’m not sure how I should rate it. I guess I’ll play it safe and rate it in the middle, 3 stars.

PS. This film is not recommended for children under the age of thirty-five!

Author’s Note

I usually try to provide a list of the cast but other than Laura Gemser, I was unable to find any credits for the other participants. Perhaps the supporting cast thought their performances were so bad, they wished remain anonymous.

Author Interview from Night Owl Romance

Hi everyone,

Here is a brand new interview of me from Night Owl Romance. I hope you find it interesting.

Author Interviews

Author: Dee Dawning

by: Tammie King

Date: 12/24/07

Hello Dee,

The girls of Night Owl Romance are pleased that you have granted us an interview

We would love to get to know you.

Could you please start by telling us a little about yourself?

Sure Tam. First, I would like to thank you and the Night Owl staff for the opportunity you have afforded me. Your website is first class and you’ve always treated me with cordiality.

Now, About myself? I’m a six one, two hundred pound male, who has aged like fine wine and loves women. I guess that’s why I write (erotic) romance. I don’t mean to come off like I’m a player—I’ve been married to the same lovely, exceptional woman for twenty-five years and she’s my closest friend. Actually, I’m more of a cut up, something, I believe, that shows up in my work.

I was born in Chicago, grew-up in Las Vegas , have lived in Phoenix the last eighteen years and haven’t melted yet. I started writing fiction a little over two and a half years ago. I think of my writing as the third phase of my adult life. Prior to trying my hand at fiction I posted reviews on music, books, movies, cars and assorted other things on some websites.

Who or what influences you when you write?

It varies quite a bit. People I’ve known or know, like and don’t like. Experiences, fantasies, news, other books, acts of kindness, acts of malice, even physical things. I’ll never admit it to her but the starting point for my book Legs was my wife’s very own fine pair or legs.

What do you do on a typical writing day?

Write, write, and write. I’ve pretty much given up TV and movies and have substantially cut back on my reading. I have a day job, which impedes my writing to some extent, so I’ve evolved into some rather weird hours. I retire between eight and nine and awake between two and three. This early morning, quiet time is perfect for writing.

dd_forbiddenpassion_medium.jpg

When you have writer’s block how do you break free?

Sometimes, I take a break. Sometimes, I start working on something else and sometimes, I force myself to work through it. However, I seldom find myself in a true block. I suffer lapses, call them detours, where the writing isn’t quite right, could be better or I’ve gone off on a tangent.

Can you please give us a sneak peek at any of your upcoming books?
getting-naked-at-the-hilton.jpg

I thought you’d never ask. Coming out in February from eXtasy Books, is my latest, Getting Naked at the Hilton. Frankly, the title pretty much describes the book, though sex was not the original reason they got naked. It’s a lighthearted, sexual romp disguised as a Contemporary Romance, set in my old hometown sin city. Oh, it’s romantic all right, but our heroine, Rachel is very imaginative about sex and it has a fairly surprising ending. It’s also somewhat multi-racial as Scott, the man, is Anglo and Rachel, the girl, is mixed. (white and black)

Please tell us what you have planned next?

I have recently completed a novella with the tentative title, Lovers and Friends. (I’m soliciting suggestions) It’s about a middle aged Las Vegas cocktail waitress, who enjoys men and makes no bones about it. One evening she finds herself in the peculiar, but enviable position of being asked to tutor a handsome young man on her specialty—sex and seduction.

I have another finished product, a novelette called, By the Book, a zany story about a couple who try to spice their sex life up by enacting one scene weekly from the fictional erotic novel, Lascivious Liaisons by Madame X. I’m going to enter this one in a contest.

Works in progress include a sequel to the popular Legs and a contemporary paranormal called, Hollywood Witches.

Who is your perfect hero? And why?

Now, this is a tough question. In my books, it would be hard to distinguish who’s more of a hero, the man (men) or woman. (women)In my first book, The Right Hand of Allah, Jane is a beautiful but deady, ass kicking, killing machine, while the man, Kelly, also a covert agent and good, but is overshadowed by Jane.

In my second book, Fortune Cookies, which is a finalist for the Eppies, Has a plethora of likeable characters. I suppose I was the fondest of Rita, the beautiful but down to earth model, who had a heart of gold.

In Legs, what can you say about Drew and Mallory, who constantly put themselves in danger trying to save the other.

What would you like to tell your readers?

It’s you I write for. Your approval, your praise. It’s keeps me going. It inspires me. If you like what I wrote tell me about it. If you didn’t like something I want to hear it too.

I take my compliments wherever I can get them. My editor on Fortune Cookies said she wanted to edit everything I do. My editor on the forthcoming Getting Naked at the Hilton apologized for taking so long because she got so involved in the story she had to keep going back to reread and do her job.

To those who have yet to read me, a word. Yes, I write about sex, but I won’t get into extreme sex. I would never write anything demeaning to women. Like I said, I love women.
I consider myself an entertainer. People say my books are entertaining and that’s just fine. If you read one of my books and are entertained, the next time you want to be entertained, you’ll probably grab another Dee Dawning book. They’re all different, but then again they’re all the same—entertaining.

What is the best and worst advice you have ever received?

Best; One of the ladies that reviewed Fortune Cookies, after giving it a glowing review, strongly suggested I enter it in the upcoming Eppies contest.
Worst; To vote for George Bush. Just kidding. My wife wanted me to take up painting seriously, instead of writing. She’s proud of me now, but wishes I’d write mainstream instead of erotic romance. But then I wouldn’t get to interact with all you lovely ladies.

Do you outline your books or just start writing?

I guess I really wing it. I’ve never started a book knowing how it was going end let along where it was going to end. I start with a simple idea and start typing as if I was following an unknown path. Hopefully, I end up in a beautiful place with a lagoon and tropical foliage and not a landfill.

As an example my latest book, Getting Naked at the Hilton started with the premise that a man gets stood up. In reality the man was me, dozens of years ago, but where it goes is totally fabricated.
Truthfully I do that with my painting and home design. I think it works to my and the readers advantage as I end up with a looser, more spontaneous product.

What was your first published work and when was it published?

Not counting my self-published, The Right Hand of Allah, the previously mentioned Fortune Cookies was first, being published a year ago in December. I’m proud of this work but my pride swelled when I was notified, in December that Fortune Cookies had made the cut and was now a full fledged finalist for the prestigious Eppie Awards, the Oscars of digital publishing.
eppie2008finalist-small-jpg.jpg

I hope it’s all right. I would like to show the blurb here.

Review of Tinto Brasses, All Ladies Do It

51tytwpdrcl_ss500_.jpg

There is something about Tinto Brass films that separates them from the run of the mill soft-core movies. Ever since he directed Bob Guccione’s Caligula in 1979, Brass films seems to push the envelope of acceptability, both visually and storywise. One only has to view the cover, showing leading lady’s voluptuous posterior to realize that All Ladies do it is such a movie.

In addition, Brass films have more realistic sets and cinematography than many American soft-core movies. Many scenes are shot outdoors and most of the indoor sets are real.

The Plot

Brass films seem to have a recurring theme. At least this and two other Brass movies I have seen (Cheeky and The Key) have much the same theme – that women can and should have affairs on their husband or boyfriend. The theory is that jealousy makes the man more attentive, more sexually creative and he ultimately desires his partner more than if he can count on her fidelity. In other words Brass is proposing one half of an open marriage. One has to surmise since this premise appears in three (that I’ve seen) Brass movies that Brass subscribes to this supposition.

The Story

Diana, (Claudia Koll), is happily married to Paolo, (Paolo Lanza) but feels that something is missing in her life. She works in a lingerie store, who’s owner is a leach and gropes her at every occasion. She resists his advances but her co-worker Antonnietta, (Isabella Deiana) occasionally accommodates the boss.

Diana is a beautiful woman who constantly garners male attention. From riding the bus to eating in restaurants, she is bombarded with amorous offers.

Then one night, her sister Nadia, (Ornella Marcucci), hosts a reading by an erotic poetress from Venice, where she meets a man, Alphonse (Franco Branciaroli) who excites her. Realizing her husband is glancing at her, she leaves Alphonse and goes to the restroom. Alphonse, follows her and is in the process of seducing a willing Diana, but is interrupted when her husband knocks and calls her name.

Not one to hide her sexuality, Diana tends to tell Paolo about her sexual encounters and he thinks she is making them up as a sexual game to excite him, which they do. Diana tells him that Alphonse had her dress above her rear end and was ready to take her, until he called for her, and he is sure it is a fabrication. Still, He becomes aroused and they make love.

Later when Diana has a torrid affair with the Alphonse, Paolo eventually finds out that it and everything else she told him really happened and rejects Diana. But Diana will not back down because even though she is having sex with others she still loves her husband and doesn’t think she is doing anything wrong.

Conclusion

I enjoyed Claudia Koll, the leading lady in All Ladies Do It. Though in possession of a darling shape, she seemed to be more streamlined than the meaty leading ladies of Brass’ older films.

Despite the pretentious title, All Ladies Do It is a lighthearted sometimes humorous movie. An example is the lingerie store where Diana works also employs an obviously gay salesman who likes to try on the lingerie.

As usual in a Tinto Brass film there are several shots of male and female genitalia. As in other Brass movies, I believe the shots used faux male genitals.

The version I have reviewed is the special edition, unrated version, in Italian with English subtitles. Apparently there are other, highly edited versions in which viewers were seriously disappointed.

Sharing the News

Hi I don’t usually post writings from my other blog, ‘Erotic Musings, Dee Dawning’ but I am human and an author and when something good happens for me I like to tell my friends, even if it is a little like bragging.

eppies.jpg

I received some great news last Thursday. My book, Fortune Cookies made the final cut and is now officially a finalist for an EPPIE award. If you haven’t heard of Eppies, it’s sort of like Emmys but for eBooks. It is considered one of the highest awards an eBook can receive. I won’t know until January if I win but even being a finalist makes me a winner, since it is a badge of honor that can be carried through life.

For those of you not yet familiar with Fortune Cookies, here is a blurb an a review that makes me smile:)

FC Blurb

Meeting for lunch at a Chinese restaurant, Jill’s friends are shocked by the improbable, amazing tale of good fortune she spins. Lust, sex, love, pregnancy, and a planned marriage to a strapping young hunk, all from eating a red fortune cookie? A FORTUNE COOKIE? Give me a break!

The owner of the Chinese restaurant sets one of the miracle red fortune cookies in front of each of Jill’s friends. Gail, the hi-powered attorney, Rita, the gorgeous model, and Saundra, the uppity socialite, look at each other, then at Chad, Jill’s dreamboat fiancée. What should they do? What would you do?

Fortune Cookies is a deliciously naughty, whimsical, tongue in cheek, romantic story that leads four friends on a paranormal journey into the supernatural in search of love, fulfillment and happiness. It is a novel for couples, about couples. Erotic and funny, Fortune Cookies will send you searching Chinese restaurants for the elusive red fortune cookie!

FORTUNE COOKIES; IT”S A HOOT

Fortune Cookies
A Contemporary Erotic/romance Novel

Fortune Cookies

Dee Dawning/Fortune Cookies/eXtasy Books/411 pages/ebook

Jill meets her friends, Gail, and Rita and Saundra and others at Eddie Chang’s place, because she wants them to sample the fortune cookies that brought her a wonderful lover and the baby she had longed for. The magic in these cookies only works if you are not truly fulfilled in your life and it turns out that most of the girls need a touch of magic in one way or another – but can it work for all of them?

This is an extremely well crafted book. It is erotic and suitable only for over eighteens, but it has a really good story, which some erotic books do not have. This book has a charm and magic all its own. If you enjoy reading very sexy books then I recommend this one to you. This is certainly five red roses and I rather think it ought to have a whole bouquet, because of all the work and creativity that went into it. and that is a first for an erotic book, but it is also very much a romance. Anne

Now here’s more news. If Fortune Cookies appeals to you, until the end of December, you can buy it, or any other eXtasy Book backlist title for 30% off the regular price. That means you can get Fortune Cookies, a four hundred page award finalist for less than 5 bucks!

Forbidden Passion is up for an Award, HELP!

I’m sorry I haven’t been here for awhile. I’ve been moving and all sorts of fun things so I have a backlog of stuff to tell you about.

What’s this? This is shamelessly seeking votes. One of my books is up for an award so I’m repeating a blog I posteed on my other blog, Erotic Musings, Dee Dawning. So take pity on this struggling author who is the middle of moving and hasn’t bought one thing for XMas and vote for my book.

First of all, my cute spunky novelette, Forbidden Passion has been nominated for best short story for 2007 by Red Roses Reviews for Authors, but to win it needs your vote. What? You didn’t read it! Why not? It matters not. I’m sure other authors are cheating. Take my word for it, it’s saucy, it’s clever, humorous and it’s feel good, good, so click on the following link and vote for it: http://redrosesforauthors.blogspot.com/2007/11/christmas-awards-2997.html

Cover of Forbidden Passion

Now for those who haven’t read it, here’s one of the reviews it received and a sample excerpt.

Forbidden Passion
Dee Dawning/Forbidden Passion/Dark Eden Press/ebook/34pgs

Adelina goes to meet her lover in a meadow beside Caspia Sea. It is forbidden for even the King’s son to make love with a Fala maiden. Reproduction is a clinical thing, because of the sickness that once destroyed so many of their people. So when Ada comes naked from the lake after they bath they are both arrested for breaking the ancient law.

This book is an erotic romp. I am not going to tell you any more because it is a short and I do not want to give the plot away. At its heart there is a love story and that is what makes it a good fun read. Dee is always a good writer and this science fiction story is no exception. If you enjoy your stories hot you will want this one! Five red roses. Anne

Sexy Excerpt (R rated)

Freshly bathed and still dripping wet, Adalina came around the corner of a stand of trees, planning to run and jump into the waiting arms of her lover. Instead, three helmeted soldiers, with loaded spear-guns, were standing around him. She started to run to him when someone grabbed her from behind.

Adalina stomped on his foot and broke away but another soldier grabbed her before she advanced three paces. Swinging her fisted right hand and connecting with her new assailant, she broke free once more only to be corralled by the original attacker, who had recovered. He grabbed, and held both of her arms behind her and pushed her towards the other soldiers and Mitheas.

The leader spoke, “A Fala and a pretty one. Prince Mitheas, you know better than that. Co-mingling with Falas out of season is forbidden. Your grandfather, the king, will be sorely disappointed.”

“As I am sorely disappointed in you, Cap’n Magis. Sneaking around and following me.”

“The law is clear and applies to everyone. Even royalty. However, because of your status, I will grant you and your tramp Fala a favor. I will not mention in my report that you were seen fucking the Fala.”

“Do as you will. I’ve got nothing to be ashamed about. I will proudly proclaim my love for Ada to grandpa, and that we have made love.”

“Humpf!” Cap’n Magis turned to his men and said: “Take the wench to the castle and place her in detention.”

“Yes Cap’n,” answered the sergeant.

They placed a pole behind Adalina’s back and between the crook of her elbows and bound her hands. Wide eyed Ada stared imploringly at Mitheas. He noticed tears had welled up in her eyes. They tied a rope around her waist, strung it to the large six-legged boonsan, and led her off.

“Don’t worry, my love. Everything will be fine. I’ll see to it,” yelled Mitheas.

She turned, and forced herself to smile. Now Mitheas was worried. He whispered to the Cap’n. “I will personally hold you responsible should anything befall her. You hear!”

Cap’n Magis, concern now revealed in his eyes said, “Oh sergeant!” The sergeant turned to the Cap’n. “One more thing. Make sure that you and your men keep their hands off the sexy Fala whore.”

The Sergeant bowed his head and said, “As you wish, sir”

“What about my clothes?” yelled Adalina, not liking the long stares she was getting from the soldiers.

“What clothes? I see no garments.”
“They’re scattered about.” Mitheas said.

The sergeant asked his commander, “Should I gather her clothing?”

“Nay. I want Lor D’ana to see the Fala harlot the way we found her.”

This just a sample of the goodies that lie in wait for you in this sexy, fun, feel good story that you can read for less than a cup of Starbucks coffee. http://www.darkedenpress.com/book_dee-dawning-forbidden-passion.html

Whatever Lola Wants! An R Rated Review

The Bottom Line
A good movie if you and your significant other wish to set the mood for what goes on in the movie.

frivolous-lola.jpg

Softcore as opposed to hardcore, is a mild form of pornography – pornography defined as: the depiction of erotic behavior (as in pictures or writing) intended to cause sexual excitement – wherein the actors and actresses, either naked or partially clothed, engage in, what at least for appearance sake are, simulated sex acts. Hardcore, is of course, the graphic celluloid recording of actual sex acts in detail and usually focusing in on the actors genitalia.

I don’t know about this particular movie but many softcore films have been shown on late night cable movie channels, like Cinemax and Showtime. Not that hardcore films are hard to get but one of the advantages of softcore films is that they are easier to obtain and carry less of a social stigma, if one tends to feel guilty about watching such things, especially since even mainstream commercial movies, occasionally, have the equivalent of softcore scenes.

The reason I say they are easier to obtain is that they are readily available for sale on websites such as Amazon and Ebay and many can be rented from Netflix and Blockbusters. This particular movie was rented from Netflix.

Frivolous Lola

It seems to be a leading lady in a Tinto Brass film you must:

• Be young and attractive
• Have an exceptional sensuous body
• Not be shy about nudity
• Exude a cheerful, lighthearted persona
• Act loveably naughty.

That has been the case in the previous Brass films I have watched and reviewed and Frivolous Lola is no exception. Rumor has it that the inscrutable producer of erotica met the vivacious young actress, Anna Ammirati while examining her body. The body of her car that is, after being involved in a traffic accident with her. It doesn’t matter whose fault it was, the outcome was inevitable – Anna gallivanting around with little or no clothing in his next movie. Anna is reputed to have entreated the enigmatic director to feature her in his next movie and a enchanting match was born.

The Plot

Lola is a carefree lass in an unnamed village in Italy of some notoriety and gossip. Her mother who grew up there, left years before but returned with a handsome paramour, Andr’e and a vibrant sexually precocious teen daughter, Lola.

Lola is a virgin a condition she dislikes. She is engaged to the son of the village baker, Masetto, whom she wants to deflower her. Masetto would like to wait for their wedding night and this frustrates Lola.
A sub plot of the movie is Lola’s relationship with her alleged father, Andr’e. They both find each other intriguing and therefore, attractive.

The Story

The story revolves around Lola’s efforts to get Masetto to make love with her and thus take her virginity. She tries various tricks, including making him jealous by coming on with other men. There was even a scene in a tavern where she is jitterbugging with three soldiers, sans her panties, with flashes of her genital folds and pubis.

Lola’s alleged father Andr’e fascinates her. He is somewhat of a leach with prurient instincts and she is drawn to and fanaticizes about him. She makes a couple unsuccessful attempts to seduce him.

In the end Lola does trick Masetto into deflowering her – her term and at their wedding the next day a scene takes place between Lola and Andr’e where you are left wondering, no believing that they also have sex.

In hindsight it may be a take on that old song of the fifties, “Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets.”

Conclusion

Lola is indeed frivolous and afew other adjectives ranging from adorable to bratty. Her self-centered thoughtless behavior is nothing short of tawdry. If there are women that behave so flippant, I wouldn’t want to be engaged to them. Yet, as a viewer there is something winsome about her frolicsome, lighthearted, even compelling behavior.

As with other Brass movies I have viewed a typical theme permeates Frivolous Lola. Nothing is shameful to her. She with the overactive libido was born to enjoy life and she resents anyone that wants to rein her in, while her man is supposed to go along with her indiscretions

Frivolous Lola is an exercise in exhibitionism. The movie seems to be a memorial to Lola’s or is it Anna Amirati’s shapely figure with voyeuristic peeks at her genitalia. The story seems incidental, it is merely a vehicle to attain the desired effect.

I do not mean to sound like this is bad. Contrary, it is good. I found the movie to be funny entertaining and stimulating – one of his best and one of the better erotica movies available.

The lovely Anna Amirati was uniformly naughty and loveable. Her body was adorable and her acting endearing. Supporting actors, Packtrick Mower and Mario Parodi did well too.

The film was shot in what appeared to be the Italian countryside. The sets and costumes were colorful and the cinematography was first rate. Rating 4.6 stars

Two Stars for the Film, Five stars for Alyssa’s…

embrace-the-vampire.jpg

What’s wrong with Hollywood’s horror screen writers? Can’t they come up with something that’s never been done before. I wonder? It seems like I have seen at least a dozen movies with some variation of the plot in Embrace of the Vampire.

Plot

Man (Martin Kemp) and woman (a princess actually) are in love, oh say two hundred years ago. They meet in the woods and as the princess rides away he falls asleep. While asleep, three nymphs approach him. He seems to be in a daze as the nymphs woo then attack him with their fangs.

The Story

Fast forward to present time
Charlotte (Alyssa Milano) wakes up from a nightmarish dream in which the man from two hunderd years ago (Martin Kemp), now an unnamed vampire tries to seduce the pretty college co-ed. After sitting up and turning on nightstand lamp she reaches to her throat and finds an Egyptian Ankh – the symbol of life. Having no idea where it came from she takes it off. However throughout the movie she keeps wearing it.

The Vampire, who seems to be occupying the top floor of the gothic looking campus clock tower next to her dorm, continues to pursue Charlotte in various ways. He is scared off a couple times by Charlotte’s boyfriend Chris (Harold Pruett). The Vampire manages to do whatever vampires do, to a troublesome boy who had picked a distraught Charlotte up (after a fight) and in the same scene to her best friend Nicole (Rachel True).

Comment

The connection between Charlotte and the vampire never became clear to me. He claimed to be in love with her, so I assume she was some great great…granddaughter of his original love—the princess. Or the connection could have been one of proximity, since her dorm was next door to the clock tower.

He, the vampire seemed to exercise some kind of control over Charlotte (the ankh?) because she began to act strangely and did some disingenuous things as we near the end of the movie. The vampire seemed to be operating under some sort of deadline. As the day and midnight deadline approached the vampire became even more aggressive and Charlotte’s actions more unexplainable.

Conclusion

Even Alyssa Milano’s baring of her near perfect breasts couldn’t save this average movie with well worn plot. On a more positive note; surprisingly I did find much of the film entertaining. The backdrop was okay and the cast well chosen. Martin Kemp did pretty good job of acting for an old bass player as did the rest of the low budget cast.

Perhaps this is frivolous of me. I’ve always been a sucker for a fine set of bon bons and Milano’s elevate this two star movie to three stars.

I never claimed to be deep.
