Vanilla Love in ParadiseAlmost Heaven is an ideal porno for those who are scared or intimidated by porn because it's "dirty" or "corrupting." It features several married characters in romantic settings where the sex feels natural and simple. It's got foreplay, an interesting storyline, and is shot in HD. If you like your porn straight with no extra kinks on the side, this may be the right choice for you.
HD, good chemistry, "Choose your Pleasure" feature, well-shot
No kink, somewhat formulaic
Almost Heaven is an erotic porn movie with high production value. There is chemistry between performers and they look like they're definitely having a good time. Scenes involve both foreplay and explicit sex. I didn't think I would be so into this film. I am drawn toward more “alternative” style with queer performers & some kink. Yet I found Almost Heaven to be just plain hot.
The story opens on a woman in a modern high class waiting room. Thing is, she just died. She's in the offices of a resort where she has to choose just one memory from her past life. Then she will bring that memory with her into the next world. The story telling is quite strong. It was written by someone named K.
The lighting and colours in this movie are bright, and since it's shot in HD you can see everything. I recommend watching this film on a larger screen if you can. There are many full or half-body shots. These make it easier to read the body language and chemistry between performers.
The romantic nature of this film is highly emphasized. Many of the characters are married, they make love in romantic scenarios, and there is plenty of foreplay in each scene. Many of the costumes are white which adds to the angelic/pure feel of the film. In fact there's a somewhat Christian vibe in that 2 out of the 6 performers have a crucifix tattoo somewhere on their bodies. This porno is very mainstream style, all heterosexual and targeted towards couples. All the performers are white. Speaking of bodies, though all the performers are very attractive, they don't all have totally “perfect” bodies. The actress in the first scene has a tiny little pouch belly that I found so charming! There are also some nice shots of the men's six packs and chests, presumably for the ladies. And all the men wear condoms during intercourse!
One great feature of the DVD is the “Choose your Pleasure” option. You can pick what kind of sex you want to see: Teasing, Cowgirl, Blow Job, Doggy Style, or Cum Shot. By selecting one of the options, all of the sections with that kind of sex will be shown in succession. This can be a fun way to mix it up. Conversely, this also means that each scene has all of those sex acts in it. This can be somewhat formulaic, but I found each scene genuine enough that I didn't care. Anyhow, I find that I often skip forward and back when watching porn, and don't often watch an entire film beginning to end in one sitting (somehow I just get distracted part way though...). If you are looking for a film with variety, this one is not for you.
As I said, this is not a porno that I would have picked out myself. I totally got into it because of the ease of the performances and the simple sexiness of it. I didn't feel like I was being “naughty” at all while watching this film (for better or for worse). It presents sex as this very natural thing. There are also a couple scenes that happen in quasi-public areas that made it hotter for me...
Follow-up commentary 5 months after original review
As I said, this porn is way more vanilla than what I'm usually into. I think the fact that I have crushes on both Brooke Lee Adams and Allie Haze really adds to my enjoyment of this film. I got turned on again from re-watching it. And frankly, the story's pretty interesting too.
