A different look at porn
This documentary offers you an interesting look at porn actors and actresses. Instead of the superficial moving flesh they normally appear to be they now had a chance to show who's the person behind the personality. Both men and women from the industry prove to be more than just sex-obsessed people. Some admit looking at sex as strictly business, others claim to enjoy it but also perform differently on camera than in private. The movie itself is centered around a photographer who became famous for his pictures of movie stars and later on even presidents. His project which is shown in this documentary is to make a book with a nude and a dressed photograph of 32 porn actors and actresses. Some poses are directly derived from famous paintings and works of art, and the photographs are works of art by themselves as well. He uses a very special camera which is quite hard to use and rather big. It's interesting to see how calmly and professionally he "manages" his subjects, especially when he tells how at first he was quite uncomfortable with nude models.
