  • José Neves's rating of the film Tough and Tender

    VHS. Many years ago, this was the film that revealed to me Cadinot's gay porns, made a few years before they become standard procedures, even in the director's work. This one (and another that i don recall its tittle) was an intense experience by the way the bodies fucked and video had an eye on/in it, watching as if it was a contact's pellicle, a skin of the actors' bodies.
