Reborn vintage porn
on 25 May 2014
Although there is no indication in the product description or on the DVD cover, these two films are very explicit in sexual content so discretion is advised if purchasing. The DVD is region free so should play anywhere. The quality of the films is certainly better than VHS having been taken from original film prints but there are a few instances of frame damage.
The First Time is from 1978 and stars Joey Civera, later to become better known as Joey Silvera, as a workshy layabout who sponges off his partner played by Mimi Morga, and who is not averse to bedding other women while Mimi is at work making a living as a porn actress. She eventually decides that there are better prospects elsewhere. The sex scenes are typical porn shots with the scenes of Joey and Mimi together being quite erotic. The women in this film all look natural and Mimi in particular has the sort of features and hairstyle that give her an elegance that would not look out of place on the covers of up-market magazines.
Oriental Babysitter is from 1976 and stars Linda Wong as a babysitter who is introduced to sex by one of her client's husband. After this she goes on to have other affairs with both male and female partners. Again, this is very explicit with too many extreme close-ups although some people may prefer this. The thing that spoils this film is the last scene which goes on for too long,taking up half the 71 minute running time. Linda Wong is very attractive but the male actors, especially the last one look like they were dragged off the streets.
Vinegar Syndrome who distibrute these films seems to be a new kid on the block doing the same sort of job as Shameless and Severin, that is giving these old films a new lease of life. You may not like the content but these film are part of cinema history so at least we have the chance to see them.
