Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad publishes a thoughtful review of Silver Shoes, and places director Jennifer Lyon Bell's film in a history of alternative porn and erotic filmmaking. "Story, foreplay, and authenticity..they genuinely enjoy each other"

NRC Handelsblad: Featuring real sexual chemistry, porn for women and couples is having a revival

 

Film reviewer André Waardenburg gives a very positive review to our film Silver Shoes in NRC Handelsblad. Praising the sexual chemistry, he situates his review in a broader discussion of alternative porn and erotic filmmaking since the 1980’s.

 

From one part of the text (English translation):

 

“A big target audience – and not just composed of women – are longing for more story, foreplay, and authenticity in their erotic entertainment. An exciting example of this feminist porn comes in the form of Jennifer Lyon Bell’s new film Silver Shoes. … The sex is integrated into a storyline that’s worlds away from typical porn clichés like nurses and pizza delivery guys. Most noteworthy is the sexual variety – a lesbian scene, a solo masturbation scene, and a straight sex scene – and the naturalism of the sex. The actors share frequent eye contact and likeable sexual chemistry. They genuinely enjoy each other. …When they become aroused, we see a red blush rise up their neck and face. When they start to orgasm, we see it slowly begin in their quivering bodies.”

 

From “Vrouwvriendelijke porno: geen verpleegsters of pizzabezorgers.” Op het Amsterdamse Holy Fuck-filmfestival is aandacht voor speciaal voor vrouwen en koppels gemaakte erotica, een genre dat een opleving beleeft.
