Faust: The Power of Sex

Directed by J.M. Ponce

Overall Impression
With all of the unbelievable talents involved like Belladonna, Sophie Evans, Rita Faltoyano, Nacho, ect, plus how good some of the screenshots looked, I figured that this had to be a solid, movie. Even after reading a two star review from possibly my most trusted reviewer aybesea. I still had to see for myself despite his obvious warning.

It turns out he was 100% on the money. I guess it just goes to show how important a good director and a solid crew are for a successful feature. In my mind it just reinforces how talented directors like Adamo are. All the elements are here, for a terrific film. There is a star studded European cast, strong performances, and a seemingly huge budget. Although the picture quality is top notch on this dvd, and there are moments that are beautifully lit, there are quite a few moments when the lighting stinks. Ponce goes for mood and feel totally at the expense of the sex. The problem is the lighting is often so poor I have trouble appreciating the action. His lens rarely captures or frames the action well rendering some hot performances ice cold. Basically it looks like Private put too much faith in a new director's first film and he dropped the ball.

Plot
I'm generally not one to follow the plot lines in my porn to closely, but trying to retell this classic does not work here. This is how the boxcover sums it up:

"Mephistopheles (Nacho Vidal) lives surrounded by his slaves and is dedicated to his favorite pleasure: turning his slaves into sexual objects and, of course, enjoying their unconditional surrender. Margarita (Claudia Jamsson),ia sweet and charming model, the incarnation of purity and virginity, is his next victim. But Faust (Toni Ribas),ia young and handsome photographer who is in love with Margarita, stands in his way."

Normally I do a fairly detailed scene breakdown with screenshots, but I am still so disappointed by this title my hart just isn't in it. So I will just recommend you read aybesea's review if you want more details. Please forgive my laziness.

Final Thoughts
Despite my obvious objections to the final product, there are a few things that showed promise. I can only hope that if Private continues to use Ponce he can redeem himself.
