Original Sin is a very steamy movie featuring Aneglina Jolie, and Antonia Banderas. It's an 18 rating, and is very sexually explicit - so not really one to watch with your parents, unless you want a massive cringe factor.
However, the film is fantastic, and very clever with a bit of a twist at the end - i won't spoil it for you though. A must buy for any Jolie or Banderas fan.
A film concerned about the differences between love and lust. The first moments are all focused upon the latter until the emotional bonds form. Whilst locked into a particular focus it explores and captures the emotional brutality, as in the lack of empathy arising from being from an orphanage in this era. Following an ascent into adulthood the obvious trade is to drift into what has been inculcated so the sexual lure becomes the choice profession - clipping. However even for the most thorough of scams often emotions get in the way of the brutal style of life. You are not sure where these have arisen from. The coffee grower who presumably could have had anyone plumps for an American dating photo and takes his chance.
Originally it is all entwined in knots, but these begin to unravel throughout the film as love conquers all. Possessions mean nothing when you meet the right person, they can easily be surrendered. Likewise the life of being street tough no longer holds the full appeal, but the sense of carnality as Angelina plays a schizo street sex worker always pulls her back. The film does have both sensual and brutal moments.
Angelina expresses an emotional vocab in the film and Banderas has the wild looks of passion turning into a lost little boy the next, the right ingredients are there to make it work.
My problem was with the script, why oh why oh why do they always have to do that. Watch it and see, it is certainly not the worst film, but it is no life changer neither.
Although Original Sin is classed as an erotic drama, it in fact only contains one sex scene which is very tastefully shot and is a vital part of the storyline. The rest of the film is a highly watchable story about a coffee tycoon who falls in love with his mail order bride which affects both their lives forever. The acting is superb as is the direction and production. The film-makers have really perfected their craft since their last Jolie collaboration, Gia.
Obviously, it will be Jolie and Banderas fans who will most want this DVD (at least, if they know it is out they will - the promotion has been awful) but you could do a lot worse if you are looking for a decent saturday night movie.
Don't expect a Friday night Channel Five movie - I really don't understand why it is classed as erotic drama. Also, you are only buying this disc for the film as extras are more or less non-existant. Instead, this is an intelligent, grown-up movie which is highly watchable and should have been a bigger success.
Give it a try!
This film is very sexually explicit, but it clearly shows life from annother side of the wall thats full of sex, drugs and violence. The director projects the contrast amazingly. It makes a change from pretty girls and hansome boys chasing after eachother.
This film is about how women can capture a mans heart and make them die for her, no matter what he past and how much money she steals from him!
