The setting of the film was a dusty Spanish town, where the town's flimsy billboard-sized bull replica emphasized its over-sized testicles. The film unrated, without an MPAA rating was noted for its scenes of Cruz' abundant nudity, especially in a scene when her breasts and nipples were licked and kissed by her young boyfriend - 'Samson' underwear factory executive Jose Luis Jordi Molla , the son of over-bearing matriarchal factory owner Conchita Stefania Sandrelli.
He compared her tasty breasts to eating a ham omelette in subtitles: One would taste like an omelette She was tempted away with the attentions of a studly underwear model - an aspiring bullfighter and ham factory employee Raul Javier Bardem, Cruz' future husband , who was hired by the mother of the groom.
At the same time, Conchita fell for the studly hunk and bought his love with a motorbike and promises of a BMW, while Jose Luis was sampling the wares of Silvia's mother.
In a second scene lit by blue light, her breasts were also feasted upon by Raul, who first sucked on her left nipple, then her right, and then her left again, and then moved lower to perform oral sex on her.
The film was also noted for the scene of a moonlit, midnight in-the-nude bullfight with full-frontal male nudity. It was also about sexual ignorance and unplanned pregnancy.
The film won first-time director Leslie Harris a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and was tauted as the first film ever written, directed, and produced by an African-American woman. It told about enterprising, self-confident almost abrasive and insubordinate , pretty, and smart 17 year-old black high school student Chantel Mitchell Ariyan Johnson living in a Brooklyn housing project - her mis-education and irresponsibility about sex and self-destructiveness led to predictable consequences of unprotected sex.
In one scene, three black girls joked about how to avoid getting pregnant: Rather than having an abortion, she carried the baby to term while making efforts to hide and deny her pregnancy , resulting in the film's believable, bloody and wrenchingly graphic labor-childbirth scene after which the premature newborn baby was heartlessly but momentarily placed in a trashbag and abandoned on a street.
The film's unrealistic and uplifting ending found Chantel taking night classes to get her HS diploma. In the film's most memorable farewell scene, he gave her romantic instructions in a cave behind a cascading waterfall as they were pursued by a Huron war party, before departing: You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you! William Henry, where the two lovers eventually came together in the golden light, and tenderly embraced and kissed repeatedly.
Cora Munro Madeleine Stowe The Lawnmower Man There was one imaginative and surreal CGI sequence of virtual reality sex or cybersex , the first of its kind, in this science-fiction thriller loosely derived from Stephen King's short story.
Marnie Burke Jenny Wright and mentally-retarded lawnmower man Jobe Smith Jeff Fahey wore bodysuits, gloves, and head-mounted displays HMDs , and were strapped into huge gyroscopes - all connected to a computer.
After they kissed, the two intertwining lovers became swirling liquid metal, fusing with one another. The couple took the form of two metallic insects looking like a two-headed dragonfly - flying as one being. Jobe took over the dual fantasy, claiming to know what was in Marnie's mind, but she became trapped in his scary world and then traumatized "Oh my God, let me out" - causing her brain patterns to become irregular, signifying that she had become a brain-dead vegetable.
Virtual Reality Cybersex Like Water for Chocolate aka Como agua para chocolate The title of this tragic and fantastical "Cinderella" love story of transcendental cooking, by director Alfonso Arau, actually meant intense agitation or sexual arousal.
The magical film, through an extensive flashback narrated by the main character's great-niece, told about the unfulfilled and doomed romance during the time of the Mexican revolution between: Tita Lumi Cavazos , the youngest daughter, a ranch cook Pedro Muzquiz Marco Leonardi Their love was unfulfilled and thwarted by her tyrannical and selfish widowed matriarch Mama Elena Regina Tome who forbid her to marry she wanted to follow the tradition of her daughter taking care of her in old age.
Her mother orchestrated the marriage of Pedro to eldest daughter Rosaura Yareli Arizmendi instead although it was thought: This still kept Pedro close to Tita as he whispered to her after the wedding: She lovingly used the slightly bloody petals in her mystical and volatile cooking to present quail in rose-petal sauce.
The passionately-cooked, aphrodisiacal meal "this is the nectar of the gods," Pedro exclaimed sent Tita's red-haired sister Gertrudis Claudette Maille into orgasmic heat and sexual awakening at the table, and the infected woman rushed to the outdoor wash-shed to cool down, but set the wooden structure on fire, and then jumped naked onto the horse saddle of the villista chief, one of the passing bandito revolutionaries - leading to an adventurous life.
The marriage between Pedro and Rosaura kept Tita's and Pedro's love alive in secret, as the narrator spoke - while Pedro admired Tita's breast in her blouse as she cooked: How dough becomes a tortilla.
And that a breast untouched by love's fire just isn't a breast but a useless ball of dough. In one instant, Pedro had transformed Tita's breasts from chaste to voluptuous without even touching them. Explosive, Climactic Passion Between Pedro and Tita Lumi Cavazos By film's end, with everyone dead or married off, Tita and Pedro were finally able to make love without interruption they had once consummated their love earlier in a candle-filled bedroom as lightning flashed outdoors.
As Pedro screamed out his love for Tita "I love you! John Brown Mario Ivan Martinez had prophetically described earlier: We can't light them by ourselves.
Just like in this experiment, we need oxygen and the help of a candle. Except that in our case, the oxygen has to come, for example, from a lover's breath. The candle can be anything: Anything that pulls the trigger and sets off one of the matches. Every person has to discover what will pull his trigger to enable him to live. Because it is the explosive flare of a match that feeds our souls. If there's nothing to trigger the explosion, our box of matches becomes damp and then we'll never be able to light any of them.
There are many ways to dry a damp match box. You can rest assured there is a cure. Of course, it's important to light the matches one at a time. Because if an intense burst of emotion were to ignite them all at once, they would produce such a strong brilliance that before our eyes there would appear a tunnel of such radiance showing us the path we forgot at birth, the same path that calls us back to our divine origins. Their bedroom erupted in flames - reuniting their souls in a radiant tunnel in the hereafter where they lived together in their "buried love" without judgment by others.
