Webster's New World Dictionary defines 'staccato' as "music with distinct breaks between successive tones" also it's Italian for "detached." In FEM STACCATO, Ninn uses distinct extended breaks in the synth-pop sounds of composer Loren Alexander to allow the listener to bask in the natural sounds of two young women pleasuring each other on screen. All 5 scenes begin with this light music then Ninn introduces sounds from the young female performers until the music mostly fades away; it returns for an occasional change in the action and for the femmes to kiss in the final visual fade-out that concludes most scenes.
Scene 1---Karlie Montana and Samantha Ryan. For about 5 minutes, Karlie and Samantha prance about before the music stops and the sexual sights accompanied by natural reaction sounds begin. Wearing these black tutu-like pieces around their waists and sexy black heels on their feet, the young women are beautiful: Samantha is a gorgeous blonde from Kansas with other hard-core experience, Karlie is a straight haired brunette from Phoenix with the smaller breasts of the two as her 32 inch boobs are the smallest of all the DVD's participants.
Carlie works on Sammantha for quite awhile; at one point Carlie's spit rolls down Samantha's clit from her ass extended into the air. Ninn perfectly captures these moments that occur in a modern interior setting where everything seems perfectly in its place.
During the last 4 minutes, Carlie inserts a purple dildo into Sam's gorgeous pussy while Ninn's camera captures Sam fingering Carlie's twat. The girls are also wearing white pearls-Carlie around her neck and Sam around her right wrist, which is an additional wonderfully visual way that Ninn links these two beauties. The music returns for the scene's final moments; the girls kiss during the final fade-out of a solid 16 minute scene---!!! outa !!!!!
Scene 2---Andie Valentino and Carli Banks. The scene opens with the young women smoking then sharing smoke between themselves. Sexxx-y. Andie has the larger boobs of this duo and her 34Ds (with big beautiful nipples) appear to be the largest of all participants in this DVD. She has long brown hair, shadowy eyes and a pierced belly button. The action begins against long windows with the cute Carli fingering Andie that Ninn captures in a wonderful diagonal knee shot; music introduces the shift to Andie sucking Carli's twat then the music fades as Andie sucks Carli in a reversal of the above mentioned diagonal shot.
The music returns for the girls to kiss then fades as Andie looks incredible atop a white chair while Carli fingers her pussy. The music returns as Andie appears to achieve orgasm then Carli blows smoke on Andie's twat for the final images of the 15 minute scene---!!! 1/2 outa !!!!!
Scene 3---Renee Perez and Celeste Star. Wearing a sexy pink thingee, DVD covergirl Renee unzips and discards this article of clothing early on this terrific scene that takes place on a stairway with white walls covering most of the background. Renee's sexy companion, Celeste, who is also wearing black heels, is another small breasted beauty with long straight dark hair. 3 minutes into the scene, Ninn pefectly edits images with music as beautiful breasts touch one another at their nipples. The camera in close-up pans down Renee's incredible body to reveal Celeste gently sucking her pussy.
At the 10 minute mark, the girls kiss and music is introduced until Ninn's camera perfectly fills the frame as Renee plays with herself while she sucks Celeste then the shot tightens and the girls look fabulous.
Later, Ninn captures another terrific shot as up the stairway Celeste sits on Renee's face as Renee fingers herself in the foreground, which turns into a beautiful diagonal with both girls almost entirely in frame. The music starts as Renee appears to achieve orgasm and the girls kiss for the fade to black. A terrific 20 minute scene---!!!! outa !!!!!
Scene 4---Lena Nicole and Marlie Moore. California girl Lena has blonde hair, small tits with tiny nipples and a sexy patch of brown pubic hair. Marlie is a cute girl with a big smile, who appears to be a fake blonde with a long-stemmed rose tattoo down the small of her back. Ninn shoots our fake blonde duo with artificial light during a night shoot.
This 20 minute scene is the weakest of the bunch. The highlight is when Marlie stands up into the upper reaches of these white posts that are lit with a pale green light and frame the darkness of the picture windows. She pulls her black panties to her inner thigh so that Lena can thrust a clear dildo into her pussy.
The action concludes upon a white leather couch with the music returning; Marlie sucks the dildo then Lena thrusts it in her pussy with Marlie lying on her back; the young women kiss for the final fade-out---!! 1/2 outa !!!!!
Scene 5---Jana Jordan and Charmane Star. For the final scene, a cute porn veteran from the Philippines, Charmane, is paired with Jana, a pretty blonde girl from San Antonio.
2 minutes in, the music fades and the sexy sounds of the duo pleasuring each other can be heard. Another second camera appears to be simultaneously filming so that these close-ups are projected onto the wall behind the wider action in the main shot. This interesting shot-within-a-shot format follows the girl/girl action until the introduction of a clear double-sided dildo.
Ninn concludes the scene by shooting down upon a slim white couch with the young women facing each other as they take turns holding the center of their double-sided member and thrusting the dildo in and out of their pussies. The music returns as the girls suck the dildo, kiss each other and fade-out. An excellent scene and a terrific finale to this DVD. !!! 1/2 outa !!!!!
FEM STACCATO runs 1 hour and 33 minutes with an extra 29 minute Behind The Scenes feature, which mixes similar elements of sight and sound on set. A 7 or 8 minute Photo Gallery is also included.
Michael Ninn's FEM STACCATO is pure poetry compared to the bump and grind of most of these over-long gonzo features. Ninn's careful use of music with the natural voice reactions of our lovely performers beautifully mix with his carefully framed images and perfectly rhythmic editing. In the future, I would like to see the 5 scenes shift and flow into one another, thus leaving that staccato (ie. detached) method of arranging 5 individual scenes to the gonzo directors. Final rating of !!! outa !!!!!
