Review

A series of three scenes: Life, Love, Lust.

The film won the 2011 Feminist Porn Award for Movie of the Year in. But, while I enjoyed it, I didn't like it nearly that much. The first scene is terrific, what there is of it, but it's very short, and it was over just as I thought I was getting into it. There are similar problems with the other two scenes. The last one has a nice theme to it, but I just didn't find the sex to be all that hot.

Still, the camera work is excellent, and there are wonderful touches throughout.

Note that the timings reflect how long the explicit sex lasts.

Scene 1: Life (Yoha Gálvez and Leo Gálvez)

★★★★½
Time: 6:00

This scene is very passionate and realistic, but it's a bit short, basically. There is more than enough passion here to sustain a much longer scene.

The camera work, though, is fantastic, with a great mix of shots that presents both an intimate perspective and a more voyeuristic one.

Synopsis

Yoha and Leo are a couple work in a restaurant together. She runs to the kitchen while waiting tables to kiss him, and they go upstairs together, sharing a drink at the bar, it would seem. They kiss, and he takes off her top, then sits her on the bar, squeezing her tits and kissing her legs. He takes off her pants and kisses her legs, then undoes her bra and sucks her tits. He picks her up and carries her to a couch, lies her down, and kisses her. She takes off his shirt and pants, and he lies over her, then goes down on her. They roll over and she sucks him, the gets atop him on her knees. They flip over, so she is on her back, and he hold her tight while kissing her. He cums inside her.

It turns out that it is his birthday, so she gives him a cupcake with a candle. And a very special present.

Scene 2: Love (Michelle Blanch and Bel Gris)

★★★★☆
Time: 7:00
Features: Internal

This is a sweet scene, in many ways, but it is a bit disjointed. There are so many edits that there isn't much of a flow to what is happening. And, again, it is just too short. One only starts getting into the emotions of the scene when it is over.

The photography, though, as usual with Erika Lust's movies, is fantastic.

Synopsis

He scatters rose petals all over a bed, preparing for his lover, whom he met by accident when he almost ran her over on his bike. The first few minutes consist of his memories, the next few of hers. That part is the most sustained. What we see is him eating her, and then them fucking with him on top of her, and her on top of him, after which he cums inside her. At the end, though, we see him disappointed that she has not, apparently, arrived for what he had planned.

Scene 3: Lust (Lara Tinelli and Lola Felini)

★★★★☆
Time: 10:00
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm

A shy woman (Lara Tinelli) goes to a masseuse (Lola Fellini) for a "special" massage.

The scene is full of erotic tension, and what seems like a very nice orgasm for Tinneli, but the sex just wasn't as hot as we would have liked. And, as with the other scenes, it feels a bit too short. The tension could have lingered a good deal longer.

Synopsis

Lola rubs Lara's legs with oil, then rubs her whole body across Lara's backside. She licks her pussy from behind, then rubs her body with her legs. She then reverses direction and writhes over her. Lara turns over, and Lola massages her stomach and breasts, then goes down on her again. Lola kneels up and rubs Lara's clit with her thumb, then goes back to licking her. Lara cums at about 12:00.

What happens, very quickly, as she leaves is really quite excellent.
