Glossy, light S&M vehicle
A companion film to STORY OF YASMINE, this Marc Dorcel video is clearly a latter-day attempt to cash in on the ongoing popularity of "S&M lite", as typified by the classic novel & film STORY OF O. It worked well enough for me.
Key ingredient is the casting of new face Sophia Bella in the title role -the video begins in unusual fashion with a first-person interview with her explaining her approach, and even commenting on the earlier feature starring Yasmine.
Plot is fairly minimal, as the porn content consists of sexy tableaux involving Sophia taken to a mansion where she is abused for the fans' pleasure. Main imagery is her tied up outside the building's facade, spreadeagled and ready for action.
Dorcel's favorite house director Hervé Bodilis keeps the bondage, sadism and masochism under control, hardly as kinky as enthusiasts might like, but at least offering a variation on the standard porn content. Sophia's femme co-stars are quite beautiful and the well-hung Dorcel boys strut their stuff, but overall it's tame and ephemeral action.
