Poor set of brief non-stories
Private is a Euro Porn label, dating back to the days when magazines and mail-order erotica ruled (mid-'60s), that despite an often distinctive house look to its videos suffers from a lack of consistent quality. This third compilation of short vignettes presents 7 segments which unfortunately are on a single level, namely mediocre.
Mainly shot in Sweden, where Private was headquartered for many years before moving operations to Spain, the scenes have little to no set-up material, anxious to get on with the XXX action. And unlike today's dominant wall-to-wall sex content (which the new Private wholly endorses) the scenes are quite brief, running no more than 10 minutes apiece, hardly enough time for the world's masturbators to get sufficiently warmed up.
DVD reissue displays a new umbrella title "Sweet Andy" referring to actress Andy Priscilla, who stars in the opening segment "Picking Pockets". She's just that, a pickpocket on location in Sweden. Her victims catch up with her and it's 3-way action that turns into a gang- bang with familiar Euro dicks Hakan Serbes and Zenza Raggi (augmented by a fellow named Riny).
Riny pops up again in the VHS version's umbrella title "Bye, Bye Harley", a cheap plug for Harley-Davidson. Also shot in Sweden, and boasting attractive waterside location like "Sweet Andy", it's merely Rina humped on his bike by the lovely blonde Nicolette, star of many a Joe D'Amato or Luca Damiano porn epic.
American (or seemingly Canadian) cameraman/director Francois Clousot also is in Sweden to direct "The Student", in which cute students Judit and Katalin visit their teacher Mike Foster and then hump him. This scene features Hungarian dialog (not translated, as who cares?) as all 3 handsome players are Hungarian, traveling to where the work is.
American cameraman with the girly name Jane Waters is also in Sweden to direct "The Servant", far removed from the classic British Pinter film, but instead merely Spanish heartthrob Alberto Rey sharing his wife with his butler Mike Foster, so the requisite d.p. content is delivered. Wifey is yet another Hungarian named Barbara, but the boys speak English due to Rey's inability to go Honky.
Waters also delivers a scene titled "Club Mix", dated in look as we're in a subterranean night club/bar with plenty of extras milling around as an orgy erupts. Ten models are credited, including Rey and Foster, with IR content delivered by Black import from Chatsworth Julian St. Jox.
One of Private's best directors, the globe-hopping Pierre Woodman, ends up in Canada of all places, memorialized by his scene "Krystyna Gets It All" opening with a close-up of an Edmonton newspaper the Sunday Sun, dated August 13, 1995. Yet the DVD menu states this segment was shot in January 1995 -oops!
Krystyna's stage name is actually Krisztina, and what she gets is several d.p.'s courtesy of fellow Frenchmen Philippe Soine and big- dicked Richard Langin, last-named a favorite Euro partner of the great Sarah Young.
Last vignette takes us to the Philippines for "Blondes Have More Fun" - where else would you shoot a story with that title? Recovering from that incongruity, I watched the atmospheric thatched hut location with sex between Rachel and Damien filmed cheaply with natural light, just a concise sex scene with a pretty girl receiving a facial.
