In Kazan’s all-male version, Santuzza becomes Santo and Lola becomes Luca. The beautiful Federico Bulsara plays Santo; Turiddu is the handsome Vilem Cage; Alfio is sexy Lucas Foz; and Luca is played by Alexander (Sasha) Byazrov. Now it might seem inconceivable that anyone would not be content with Bulsara as his lover, but Byazrov is one of the most beautiful men to ever walk the planet and he plays the flirtatious and seductive Luca to perfection.
The film opens with Santo discovering Turiddu bidding farewell to Luca after a night of bliss. The first sexual encounter, however takes place between Luca and Alfio. The colorful setting appears to be a circus tent. After Foz has given a loving blowjob to Byazrov’s beautiful uncut piece, he gives him a passionate rimming causing Sasha to have a no-hand's cum shot. It is now Foz’s turn and Sasha teases his cock unmercifully before swallowing it. He shoots with Sasha’s lips on his cock. Byazrov then skewers Foz who cums while sitting on Sasha’s dick. It’s then Lucas' turn to fuck Sasha--first on all fours and then with Sasha lying on his back. Once again Sasha cums without touching himself. Lucas has a no-hand's cum explosion, too. This scene makes it very believable that Alfio would kill any rival for Luca.
Santo finds the faithless Turiddu at a bar cruising a muscular hunk, Jorge Del Toro. (Bull is an appropriate name for one with such a build.) Santo berates his lover with being absent last night but is ignored. Turiddu's attention is too much on Jorge. Santo realizes that if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em, and goes off with Turiddu and his new companion. After the three relieve their bladders, Vilem starts making out with Jorge. It is touching to see Santo trying to get his lover to pay attention to him. Jorge who is getting blown by Vilem takes pity on the "odd man out" does the same for Federico.
We cut to the dazzling Ettore Tosi—Kazan’s l'attore del primo rango—who had been at the bar and wanders into the circus tent to find a naked Milton Abdalla blowing three equally naked hunks: Ivan Andros, Mario Lopez, and the incredible Tiziano Cortese. After three spectacular no-hand's cum shots, we return to Turiddu and company. Vilem is fucking Federico who is now sucking Jorge. Vilem and Jorge switch places and Federico is impaled on Jorge’s bull dick. He cums no-hands while being fucked.
We return to the foursome when Ivan and Tiziano are getting their asses admired. I am hoping Tiziano might bottom here, but he tops. The other couple begin the oldest dance, too.
As we return outdoors, Federico is riding Vilem’s dick while Vilem is sucking Jorge. Federico does another no-hander; Vilem jacks off Jorge; and Federico gives Vilem a helping hand.
Cutting back to the indoor foursome they are still at it and the cum is soon flying.
(I normally dislike it when we cut back and forth between scenes, but when they are of equal value as they are here, I cannot complain. Besides with the magic of DVD one is able to edit scenes as one wishes with just a push of the button. That is, if one has a hand free.)
Santo is still nagging Turiddu about his not coming home last night when Luca walks by with that come-hither look no one could resist. Turiddu spurns Santo and follows after this walking dream. An angry, brokenhearted Santo informs Alfio of Luca’s betrayal. A montage sequence wherein Santo remembers his happiness with Turiddu is broken when Santo is brought back to reality by seeing Turiddu in Luca’s arms.
Seeing these two illicit lovers together is what we have been waiting for, and the scene between them is not disappointing. It is both sensual and romantic definitely conveys the thrill of the forbidden. Sasha uses the same tantalizing oral manipulation on Vilem as he did on Foz. It is probably because the actor is not really comfortable sucking dick, but it works here for his teasing, flirtatious character. And when he finally does go down on the dick, it is electrifying. He makes an incomparable bottom, and Vilem makes the most of it. Sasha cums (no-hands, of course) while being fucked and Vilem shoots a steady and copious stream across Sasha's thigh.
As he leaves Luca, Turiddu runs into Alfio. They circle one another warily, and then dive into a vigorous kiss. Turiddu thinks he has yet another conquest, but Alfio stabs him while they are thus embraced and Turiddu falls dead at his feet. Such is “Rustic Chivalry”.
Note: This first appeared in a soft-core version entitled “Cavalleria Rusticana”. The hardcore version was worth the wait.
The combination of Kazan and Bjorn is a marriage made in heaven. Bjorn’s influence can be seen in his trademark no-hands' cum shots and in the multiple cum shots per scene. Kazan brings a sense of story and cohesion to the action and a wonderfully subtle sense of humor and the ability to get fantastic performances from his actors. Both have an eye for gorgeous male beauty and great camera sense. Whether alone or separately, I hope these artists give us many more films of this quality. It is an incredible accomplishment!
