Review brief: Zazel A Review by FacIan Title Zazel - Philip Mond's Scent of Love Translation: n/a Studio: Metro Collection: n/a Price: 14 Format: NTSC Actions and Key Words Action: Lesbian; Straight, Anal Fetish: Body painting; Tattoo; Latex; High heels; Lingerie (more likely: Sexy outfits); Big tits Initial expectation Something new. Something nice. Something erotic. Something different! General comment This film is really out of the standard production. It is a long dream made of different fantasies. The girls are absolutely gorgeous and the scenes are really hot! This film is one of the kind you can put in a visible place on your DVD shelf and if someone asks about it you can answer: "That? Porn? Not at all! It is an adult film for sure, but far from porn!" What I mean is that the point of this film is obviously not the sex actions but all what is around it. Screen shots You can find the screen shots of this film on my site. The screen shots are here. DVD perspective Picture is good.

Review brief: ZazelAn Official Selection of the Goldmember Masterpiece Collection What is the Masterpiece Collection? I suppose it is my personal pornography Hall of Fame. It is only for those select films that I consider to be at the very pinnacle of the industry. This is an honor reserved only for films that I believe will stand the test of time. Zazel - The Details Studio - Metro Director - Philip Mond Female Cast - Sasha Vinni, Anna Romero, Brooke Lane, Gina LaMarca, Grace Harlow, Helena, Lene Hefner, Nikie St. Gilles Male Cast - Devin, Kevin James, Drew Reese, Antionio Valentino, Jon, Running Time - 2 hours 5min (approx) Overall Impression It was a very difficult for me to decide if this movie deserved five stars. The film has some serious faults, but many remarkable scenes. It does have some pacing problems in that there are a few scenes (as beautiful and erotic as they may be) are a too much style over substance. That said this film is amazing, and contains one of the best looking casts assembled.

Review brief: Writer/Director/Videographer: Philip Mond Running length: 2 hrs. 5 min. D.O.P. 10/26/95 Female cast: Sasha Vinni, Lene Hefner, Anna Romeo, Gina LaMarca, Nikki St.Gilles, Brooke Lane Male cast: Antonio Valentino, Kevin James, Drew Reese, Devin, Jon Audio/Video: The video was excellent, with vibrant colors and no graininess that I noticed. Most of the music in it is quite nice and well matched, with the exception of a hideous vocal that was playing during the first male/female scene. Gawd, that was awful, and seemed totally out of place. There's no talking other than Sasha's occasional narration and less than resonant voiceovers.

Review brief: Frankly, I don't know what film the rest of these reviewers watched. I don't watch porns for the sound, or the plot, or the special effects. I watch them to get aroused... and that's where this film is lacking. Sure, the women are quite attactive, but I can see naked attractive women on late night Cinemax. In short, we we're most looking for in this film is what it lacks... torrid, unabashed, uninterrupted sex. Most of the sex is very cold, artsy, and staged (rather than "hot" and spontaneous) with far too many special effects, cuts, and other BS mixed in. And, there's too much masturbation and lesbian sex... not enough of the good stuff (male-female). Moreover, to top it off, the main gal (Sasha) doesn't do anything other than get herself off (I don't buy that it's her in the very, very brief tiger sex scene). While other reviewers might use terms like Stylish, Incredible, Different, Artist, "a visual feast", etc., I'd be most likely to use the terms Boring, Unending, Repetitive, and so forth.

Review brief: Starring: Lene Hefner,Brooke Lane, Gina LaMarca, Helena, Nikie St. Gilles, Sasha Vinni, Grace Harlow, Anna Romero Pros: drop dead gorgeous chicks, a masturbating chick, sex hungry chicks, chicks assuming uncomfortable positions just to get off, exotic scenery, director was able to show that women have beautiful body parts other than just tits, pussy and ass, some decent cum shots, and the music wasn't half bad either Cons: er...um...er..., Ok, well the fake fire effect in the last scene really got on my nerves, and I didn't really like seeing a chick with a punk rock hair do(but she was hardly seen) Plot: I really wasn't paying attention. I think it had something to do with a scent of love and..um.. people fucking. Must see moment: Just about every moment in the damn thing. The world of Zazel offers a visual feast. Bodies are painted like tigers, pussies like flowers, and women strap dildos on the heels of their boots. The best part is that this DVD reminds you how many beautiful body parts a woman has.

Review brief: Zazel: The Scent of Love is a beautiful, surreal piece of erotica. The interesting cinematography, creative makeup, and vibrant colors make it much more than a porno. Once I said that if ever a porno were a painting, Zazel it is (and the painter would be the child of Georgia O'Keefe and Hieronymous Bosch.) Most of the scenes are shot outdoors in a tropical jungle landscape. Without giving away too much of the visual intrigue, one of the scenes begins as a close-up of the inside of flower. The flower starts twitching as the camera zooms out. Upon further zooming it becomes clear that this flower is the painted clit of a woman. A few porn star type women disrupt the very unique appearance of Zazel.
