A Couples Film, but also Much More

By: Oranje
In-House Review - May 03 2010

I've been complaining for some time that porn needs to move in a direction where they can market something besides what female talent is in a film and what they are doing/willing to do in the film. An Eternal Love strikes me as a kind of response to this pressing market need by highlighting the couples nature of this film, not putting in bold letters only the female talent on the front, and otherwise trying to tell a story more than trying to market individuals. It strikes me very much as a success.

Of course, that would have to be true with the stunning Tori Black in the film. Recently she was photographed a bit without much in the way of makeup on, and she is truly a beautiful woman, I'm hoping she'll do some scenes looking a bit more natural. Just flat-out cute. In the first scene on the disc, we can already see we're going to get a different kind of directorial style. The focus is variable, giving the scene a more rushed feel. With mostly tight shots and up-close work, we never really establish where we are and who is doing what. Normally I make that statement as a complaint, but this is actually very effective It feels like a plausible interaction between an actual couple. Kudos to Tori, Rocco Reed, and the director for making it all work. Sure the blowjob sequence wasn't quite as well captured as it could have been, but it was far sexier for seeming so much more candid, so honest. Nothing outrageous from an action perspective here, so you'll have to go check out an Elegant Angel production to witness Tori doing anal or something like that - which I plan to do. But for this film, this performance is perfect. The cumshot is an ass cheek one, where it doesn't feel posed either. Just very well done all the way around.

We learn that the blurriness of the last scene was because it was a dream sequence, and Tori's lover has in fact passed away. She gets in the tub, and I feel a bit dirty for admiring her body after such a sad sequence. But as she dozes off in the tub, Rocco is there again, making us see how the premise of the film is going to work throughout. This is both brilliant and touching. And sexy too! Talent.

Lexi Belle comes over to try to cheer her up and introduce her to someone new. It almost comes across as a bit callous, but it's just a thing with line delivery. Jasmine Delaton isn't all that hard to look at either, and she has a pool scene with the guy suddenly Tori kind of has her eye on but kind of doesn't. So of course now we watch Jasmine, in a kind of blurry way, get fucked by the side of the pool. If I could have asked for one thing, it would have been jus t a little bit lower lighting for this scene. Jasmine washes out a bit: kind of a shame. External pussy shot in the end. Not a bad scene, and it tells more of the story, too. We fade back to Tori, and the guy is still just rubbing Jasmine with sunscreen. Now Tori can't find her wedding ring and is extremely upset. Everyone at the party tries to comfort her. Bad lines all around, but not atrocious.

Time for Lexi to have a scene! She still has to be one of the cutest porn stars going these days, though I wish she'd go back to being the brunette she was. There's equal time for beefcake as she and one of the guys both strip. Again, a very balanced film this one. They talk about risking their friendship, and we know where this winds up going. Another body shot in the end, after a great scene performed by top talent.

Just a great film, and it's capped off by Tori relenting a bit and getting together with the new guy. We fade out with Tori typing away (hey, I can relate!), and voila, it turns out that was her first novel. She holds it in her hands at the end, though for some reason I was expecting Rocco to come up behind her or something at the end, just to tie that last part up.

Still, a fantastic film, a great couples film, and I don't say that with the stigma of a film that isn't hot enough to turn on porn veterans. Great work all the way around, and you won't be sorry you bought it.
