Initial Expectations: Iíve really liked what Iíve seen of Laure Sainclair from Marc Dorcel, so I have high expectations.
Initial Reaction: Itís a good feature, but fairly tame for a European feature.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody curious about Euro-porn
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for more extreme European sex
Audio /Video Quality: The English audio is dubbed, but very clear and nicely balanced. The video is soft and has a slight grain. There are some shadows in the scenes, but normally they help out the mood and enhances the scenes. It gives the feature a bit of an artistic feel and doesnít detract from the feature at all.
Music: Although there isnít music in every sex scene, whatís there is balanced very nicely and fits the scenes very well. The music has more of a mainstream orchestral feel to it and really helps to enhance the scenes.
Menus: The main menu has a little animation and gives a nice taste of some of the feel of the feature. The chapter menu lets you jump to any of ten places based on a small still photo.
The Feature: Laure Sainclair wakes up one morning with a splitting headache and no clue of where or who she is. Her only memories are flashes of a wild orgy, which seem to unnerve her. Christophe Clark is there to comfort her and help, and claims to be her fiancť. In reality, heís trying to train her to be a high class courtesan with the amnesia a result of his forcing her into it. Of course, the amnesia could be the perfect thing to make Christopheís plan succeed as long as he doesnít really fall in love with her.
Lea Martini, a nice looking bleached blonde with a nice set of natural tits, starts things off with Christophe Clark in a sunroom. She teases him by crossing and uncrossing her legs while clearly showing him her panties, and then comes over to caress him and suck his cock. He skips eating her pussy to get her warmed up, and instead goes straight to fucking her from behind. They move to the couch to work through a couple more positions before Christophe makes a donation on Leaís tits. Itís a hot scene that has some pretty decent chemistry. Itís very tame for a European scene, but gives Amnesia a nice opening.
Lea quickly moves to her next partner, David Perry. They go into another room where she begins sucking him off almost immediately while rubbing her pussy. David has Lea play with herself a little while he undresses and then quickly flops down on her and starts fucking her pussy. Lea gets into it pretty good while probably goes a little way to explaining why David doesnít last too long before decorating her pussy. Itís a short scene that doesnít have much time to build up heat. The chemistry is lacking, mostly due to David seeming like he had to be somewhere else, which made Lea overdo things a little.
A dark haired girl I donít recognize, but who has a nice body and average face, gets busy with a dark haired guy in front of a large group. He starts out kissing her and sucking his tits before she slowly sucks his cock. He doesnít get much of a warmup before starting to fuck her from behind. The crowd starts to get into things too, and starts playing with themselves and each other. Thereís even a little fucking in the crowd, but none of it amounts to much. The main guy ends things with a nice pop on the dark haired girlís back and ass before she cleans up the remnants from his cock. Thereís some nice heat developed here, as well as a nice bit of chemistry.
Laure Sainclair finally gets in on a little of the action thanks to Anita Dark and the brunette from the previous scene coming to give her ďher medicineĒ. They interrupt Laure from her dreaming and proceed to start working on her. Laure looks extremely hot here in some latex and fetishwear and thereís an almost instant spark between the women. The girls start working Laure over and then switch around so everybody gets to both give and receive. Itís a very hot scene with excellent chemistry. The only problem is that the scene feels very cut off rather than feeling like it comes to any kind of conclusion on its own.
Laure continues to get some action in the next scene. Sheís blindfolded and sucks off the guy from the party thinking itís Christophe, who stands behind and talks to her to maintain the illusion. David Perry, Olivia Del Rio, and others stand around and watch the show, and play with each other a little as they do. Laure turns around and lets the guy fuck her from behind, and even takes it in the ass. Finally the guy blasts his guy goo on her gash. Itís a very warm scene, and sadly Laure doesnít seem to be into the guy as much as she was the girls.
Anita Dark, a very nice looking brunette, gets a turn with David Perry next. She sucks his cock while kneeling on a rocking chair that David moves to pace her. He then moves behind Anita and teases her by thrusting his cock between her ass and panties before fucking her. Anita flips over and lets David continue to fuck her pussy, and then gestures for Laure and Christophe to come over when they enter the room. Laure touches Anitaís breasts a little before switching places with her, letting David fuck her pussy as Anita sucks and tit-fucks Christopheís cock. The guys finish things off by having Christophe pop on Laureís face while David decorates her ass. Once again Laure and Anita both seem to be really into the scene, which needless to say adds a lot to it.
Laure becomes the prey for a hunting party next. She tries to escape through the property while several guys try to catch her. Whichever hunter catches her gets to consume his prey. When Laureís caught she begs to be let go, but passes out. She wakes to find the guy licking her pussy and then doesnít utter anything close to a complaint as he crawls up and starts fucking her. Once again Laure takes it in the ass, and this time seems to get into it much better. She takes the pop on her ass to finish things off, which was kind of a disappointment after the heat in the rest of the scene.
Christophe Clark gets into the action again, this time with Olivia Del Rio and another brunette. The scene starts with Christophe fucking Oliviaís pussy and then pulls it out for the other girl to suck. He pokes Oliviaís pussy a little more before fingering and then fucking her ass as the other brunette sucks on her tits. The other girl continues to help as Olivia moves around, but never gets in on any of the direct action herself. The closest she gets is to take an ass to mouth and the pop shot. Itís a fairly hot scene that has some decent chemistry, but I would have liked to see the action a little less one sided.
The winner from the hunting party gets a visit from another brunette next, who claims to want to suck his cock. She sucks him and then bends over for him to fuck her pussy without either of them removing any clothing. They donít go through any other positions, and it isnít long before the guy unloads on her ass. Itís a very average scene thatís easily skipped.
Another of the brunettes stumbles upon Laure sucking Christopheís cock. She watches them for a bit while playing with herself before coming over to join in. They team up to suck Christopheís cock before the other girl bends over to take Christopheís cock from behind. Laure watches a little while caressing the girlís ass before taking off her vinyl panties and switching places with her. After a little tit- fucking with the other girl Christophe reams out each girls ass with his cock while they kiss and then unloads a nice spray on their faces. Itís an extremely hot scene that has great chemistry between everybody as well.
Olivia Del Rio and another brunette take Laure down for her final ďtestĒ in the penultimate scene. Laureís paired with her pervious partner from when she was blindfolded and sucks and fucks him while everybody else watches. Christophe is the only one not present, but stumbles on it later, and shortly before Laure takes a DP as David Perry joins in. Laure seems partially into the scene, but also kind of devoid of emotion. Although normally this would hurt a scene, in this instance it fits in very well with the plot and actually enhances it. She ends the scene with both guys unleashing their spooge streams on her holes.
Finally, Roberto Malone gets the present he was waiting for, Laure Sainclair, as a large group watches. Not surprisingly, much of the group gets into it as Laure sucks his cock and then hops on to ride it. Laure works her way around the chair, and even makes positions that look extremely uncomfortable easy and possibly even enjoyable. Roberto finally pulls out and unloads on the nearest girlís face, letting the rest of the group unload soon after. Itís a fairly hot orgy, but Robertoís Texas accent was so annoying and bad that it really brought down the entire scene.
Although not unforgettable, Amnesia is very well done. It takes a fairly thin plot and uses it extremely well and artistically which raises things up quite a bit. The sex is also nicely done, and has a fairly nice balance. Thereís a nice mix of group, lesbian, vaginal, and anal sex. The only thing thatís missing is any of the women getting a little foreplay, which I actually enjoy watching. Most of the sex focuses on Laure Sainclair, who does a very nice job. She plays the scenes with a nice range of emotions, which although not perfect, do add quite a bit. Amnesia shows that a little class and care about a decent feature can turn what could be an extremely forgettable smut flick into a nicely done adult movie.
Extras: The photo gallery contains a nice mix of twenty full screen photos and snapshots. Bios are included for Laure Sainclair, Olivia Del Rio, and Lea Martini. Each one offers a few photos, a little personal information, and a list of some of the starís other movies. Finally, thereís internet information.
Themes: Straight, masturbation, group, orgy, lesbian, anal, voyeurism, DP, and spanking
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Overall: Currently, Amnesia can be found online for between about $19 and $32 with a large portion of the stores offering it for under $25. At the low end itís a pretty fair price. There isnít much of a plot, but whatís there is handled extremely well. The sex varies a little, but with the exception of only one scene is all well above average. Although the extras lack a little, the transfer more than makes up for it.
Note to Wicked / Marc Dorcel: Since many people in the USA are unfamiliar with European stars, it would be nice to see a little larger bio section or maybe even just a cast listing with photos. This way if the viewer sees somebody they enjoy they have a chance of finding another feature with the person rather than just taking a wild guess and ending up disappointed.
