Gladiatori: Reportage Sul Cinema Hard Italiano Details


Depending on one's personal perspective, Italy is either blessed or cursed with one of the busiest and most productive adult film industries in Europe, producing what are often regarded as among the best and most professional hardcore sex films in the world. Gladiatori: Reportage Sul Cinema Hard Italiano is a documentary that takes a non-judgmental look at the Italian porn business, featuring interviews with notable figures both before and behind the camera as they discuss the nature of the work and how they got involved in adult entertainment. The film also tags along for a film shoot in Hungary (where many producers stage their shoots, due to more lenient laws regarding pornography), and offers some explicit examples of the interview subjects enjoying their work. Directed by Maria Martinelli, Gladiatori: Reportage Sul Cinema Hard Italiano was screened at the 2000 Turin Film Festival and at several other European film fests. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
