JUST WHEN I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO LOVE ISABELLA ROSSELLINI MORE THAN I ALREADY DO...
I love Isabella Rossellini. I love porno. I also love bugs. So imagine my delight when I found out that Rossellini has directed and starred in a series of shorts entitled GREEN PORNO, each humorously relating the details on the sex life of creepy-crawly critters. From Twitch Film.net and posted by Tom Brown:
Green Porno is a series of very short films conceived, written, co-directed by and featuring Isabella Rossellini about the sex life of bugs, insects and various creatures. The films are a comical but insightful study of the curious ways certain bugs “make love”. “Green” echoes the ecological movement of today and our interest in nature, and “Porno” alludes to the racy ways bugs, insects and other creatures have sex, if human, these acts would not be allowed to be screened or air on television, considered instead as most filthy and obscene.
BUNCHE NOTE: There's just something awesome about a fifty-five-year-old Italian-Swede getting her simulated hump on in a fly costume.
Each film is executed in a very simple childlike manner. They are a playful mixture of real world and cartoon. Each episode begins with Isabella speaking to the camera “ If I were a…(firefly, spider, dragonfly etc.). She then transforms into the male of the species explaining in a simple yet direct dialogue the actual act of species-specific fornication. The costumes, colorful sets and backdrops as well as the female insects contribute to the playfulness of the films. The contrast of this “naïf” expression and filthy sex practices adds to the comicality of Green Porno.
Green Porno is an experiment specifically conceived with the third screen, namely cellular screens, computers and ipods.
I can't wait to see this shit!
