This decadent and luminous film is a new achievement of erotica. Voted into Greta Christina’s “Year-End Top-Something-or-Other List”
Maria Beatty’s …”Ecstasy in Berlin’s” perverse pleasures are expertly filmed and deftly framed, giving it an air of luxurious decadence. Watching it made me feel like a wealthy sybarite in an elegant bordello, with lovely and expensive girls performing a series of degenerate sex acts carefully staged for my benefit. It looks like a German art film of the 1920s, like a dirty movie by Murnau or Fritz Lange, or like vintage erotic photographs come to life. ~ Greta Christina
A golden Weimar beauty slips a needle into her creamy thigh, and while in her euphoria slips into erotic fantasy. It begins with a white-gloved hand at her throat, emphasising her vulnerability and surrender, followed by a lingering, deliciously thorough kiss from a stunning and powerful woman. She drifts through a variety of exotic experiences, all made possible by her dazzling submission and her partner’s absolute command. Her perfect flesh is alternately spanked and caressed, her lips kissed and then forced to worship a fine leather boot. She dreams of being strictly corseted, whipped, and bound, and led to a glowing, graphic climax.
Both delicately sensual and sexually intense, it conveys all the dangerous rewards of passion indulged. To relish “Ecstasy in Berlin 1926” is to experience the delirious, consuming, and glorious fever of obsession itself.
