This recent addition to the MetArt HD erotic movie collection is an energetic, perfectly paced, and wonderfully performed exercise in temptation and tease. Here filmmaker and star work together in complete harmony, and the film is a high-voltage delight from beginning to end.
The key ingredient in the success of “Grifos” is tease. And the young woman doing the teasing here is a gifted expert in this erotic art form. Diva A can be more suggestive with a look in her dark eyes or a pout of her luscious lips than lesser talents can accomplish with their entire bodies. Consider this: the lingerie-clad Diva A doesn’t reveal so much as a breast until the 3:30 mark — a full third of the way into the movie. This girl, to employ the technical term, is hot — clothed or nude, or anywhere in between.
Director Rylsky employs an interesting set and some clever blocking. As “Grifos” begins, Diva A is descending a staircase. If you’re ever wondered if walking down a flight of stairs could possibly be sexy, you’re find your answer here. Once she’s reached the ground floor Diva is in a rather compact space. A slat-back chair occupies the foreground, and a gold column, which serves as a symbolic stand-in for a brass stripper pole, is off to the left of the frame.
First Diva works her way to a wall. Legs spread wide, she gracefully lowers her lithe body to the floor — I can’t adequately describe this move, but you’ll find it at 1:58, and it’s worth finding. She spends some time in the chair, something of a lap dance without a lap, then briefly and effectively “works the pole,” and winds up on the floor. There’s a moment, at 4:46, where she rises to stand and the lighting captures the elegance and physicality of her body absolutely beautifully.
The teasing continues. Diva works her magic with sultry confidence. And Rylsky, through clever pans, cut-aways, and lap dissolves, heightens the effect masterfully. Of course, a tease without a pay-off can be annoying, to say the least, and when Diva A ditches her panties the pay-off is well worth the wait — explicit images and erotically-charged action fills the final third of the production.
While much of the sexual energy here is generated by Diva’s body — have a look at the section right around 9:00 as she “works the floor” — much attention is paid to her face, and it’s no less sexy. “Grifos” is a real star turn for Diva A, and a wonderful piece of erotically-charged cinematic art from director Rylsky.
