Except for Jean-Jaques Annaud's The Lover, I have never seen a softcore sex film
with better cinematography, and there's lots of imagination and some pretty good
story-telling in there as well. (The DVD is a must-have for your collection -

Here is a high quality version of the (intentionally) disgusting scene of
Jenna Jameson being devoured by the
cannibal-monster in Samhain. This
zipped .wmv clip is approximately full DVD quality, and is filled with
extreme gore and graphic nudity (the most graphic of which was performed by a
mannequin double). It does include some humor. The cannibal hates the taste of
her fake tits!

De Noche Vienes, Esmerelda (1997)
De Noche Vienes, Esmerelda (1997) is a Mexican comedy staring Maria Rojo,
whom you might remember from Midaq Alley. Esmerelda is by nature a giving
woman, but will only have sex with someone she is married to. Not a problem
when one is willing to marry everyone. As the film opens, she gets out of bed
with her husband and heads off to work at the hospital. Her husband,
suspicious, follows her, and sees her change into wedding clothes and begin a
wedding ceremony with another man. She is arrested, and charged with not one
but five counts of bigamy. Most of the film is dialogue between her, the judge
who is taking her testimony, a courthouse stenographer and the judge's
assistant. The judge, of course, falls for her. She is convicted, but is
granted conjugal visits from all five husbands.
Rojo pulled of the role extremely well, and was absolutely charming start
to finish. It was impossible not to like her character. As she relates the
story of the marriages, we see what she is describing, and the other players
are there in the scene as well, watching. I don't believe I have ever seen
this technique before, and found it unique and refreshing. I suspect
there was some real cleverness in the dialogue as well, but that would
probably have been better for someone fluent in Spanish.
This is a C+ as a romantic comedy. This is not my favorite genre, and I
found this one entertaining.
- IMDb says 6.6.
- It won 5 Ariels (the Mexican Oscar) and was nominated for all the other
- It is in Spanish with English subtitles.
In the opening scene, she does a full frontal. Late in
the movie, we see her in a transparent blouse. Note that
Maria Rojo was born in 1943. Do the math. She was 54 when she made this film. For my money, this is one foxy
