Famed adult filmmaker HPG (the better-known moniker for Hervé P. Gustave) is a tireless workhorse who puts together whatever combination you can imagine for his many film shoots. He always includes an extra camera on set that he leaves running and which captures not just the main action but his own involvement as director. Raphael Siboni has combined the best ninety minutes taken from thousands of hours of footage, revealing so much more than just explicit action (which there is plenty of, in case that’s an issue for you). HPG frequently works in full undress to help his performers feel as comfortable as possible, never a tyrant but always devoted to making his performers feel good in order to facilitate the best possible results. You’ll be surprised at how much is faked on camera as well: if her ass isn’t in the shot, that slapping noise is probably the guy hitting himself, and actual penetration is saved for when it’s needed directly on camera, the rest of the time simulated. Interviews with the performers themselves is avoided and is not quite necessary, as the film reveals plenty of personality watching them work, then ends quite humorously with revelations about just how sexy it is to be tired and worn out at the end of the day.
