Green Porno Movie Review

There’s an eco-friendly peep show up on the Internet, Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno. From Isabella’s six foot long insect penis to her flesh colored body tights boasting graphic anatomically correct female erogenous zones, this amazing series of short films promises never a dull moment sexy shock and awe.

Green Porno is no ordinary excursion into sexual urges in the animal kingdom on land and sea. And it’s in no way from a National Geographic nor children’s point of view either. Rather, defying all existing categories previously known to any species Rossellini has embarked on an affectionate, raw when not surreal, often tongue in cheek and intermittently lusty exploration of creature erotic appetites. And she does so as writer, director, narrator and also playing every role of these many species caught in the act, including the males, females and everything bisexually imaginable in between.

Rossellini’s remarkable creative DNA is no surprise here – she’s the daughter of classic screen goddess Ingrid Bergman and legendary director Roberto Rossellini. And Isabella is no stranger to playing everyone all at once – male and female – in a movie. In her film tribute to her father in 2006, My Dad Is 100 Years Old – which our Women Film Critics Circle honored with a special award – Isabella starred as her father and mother, and also Hitchcock, Fellini and Charlie Chaplin, among others.

The first season of Green Porno is populated with frisky nude bugs, including dragonflies, bees, spiders and fireflies. And the new mating season debuting April Fool’s Day – and we’re not kidding – features whales, starfish, and barnacles. The radiant colors and beyond imagination fantasy costumes and sets are indescribable.

Rossellini and Dragonflies Make A Porno. Not exactly bestiality, but don’t expect Isabella to get a room.
