Art & Joy & Pleasure

An erotic journey through twelve visually attractive vignettes; there are twelve main concepts, with each one of them shot in a very different and innovative way, crowned with great wish to portray two of the greatest themes in our world - love and eros without any limits ...

There is a specific part of suspense in the whole project: the first vignettes are merely an innocent vision of passionate relationships among lovers, while other vignettes - especially in the middle of the film - are becomming more and more erotic, and are shot in almost hardcore style; the end is a mixture of both, romantic softcore and daring hardcore ...

Also artistic visual film without any words, from time to time shot in the style of a New Wave movement of the 60's, using many different colour filters with short takes; sometimes in full light, but sometimes also in darker tone. A memorable experience for any viewer.

This highly experimental and visually graphic film is noted because of its eternal question: what is the definition of art eros on one side and the definition of pure pornography on the other? Where are the boundaries and limits between them?
