TLA issue a DVD containing six short films about men who do not always get what they want, SEXUAL TENSION: VOLATILE brings together two award-winning filmmakers (Marco Berger and Marcelo Mónaco) for the first volume in a series of erotic short films.
Honours are divided between two directors, Marcelo Monaco and Marco Berger, but the films have a unanimity of style that makes them fit together very well as a group.This first volume is a mixture of the brilliant, and the really rather lame. A rather silly scene between two straight men (The Other One), in which one man teaches the other how to make love to a woman, I found irritatingly puerile, and not very well acted. On the other hand the second movie, The Cousin, was absolutely brilliant. From the moment the camera hones in on the white underwear clad bulge of the young cousin, we, like the geeky, but sexy young visitor, are obsessed with what lies underneath. This was, without doubt the best of the six films.
However it’s all diverting enough, and in at least one film, The Cousin, houses a mini masterpiece. The set comes to DVD on February 11, 2013.
