The new film “Electra Lux” by Venezuela-American film director Sebastian Gutierrez in a humorous way tells what happens to the stars of sex in early retirement, and also surprises with the unexpected appearance of Julianne Moore as the Virgin Mary.
“Electra Lux” - a sequel to Gutierrez’s previous work, “Women in Need” (2009). Comedy talked about ten women whose lives intertwined during the day. The main character of the porn star Electra Lux (39-year-old American actress Carla Gujino, starring in the recent Forbidden Reception) suddenly discovers that she is pregnant.
Depression, it turns out, is not overplayed by porn stars, and in the process of finding new means of survival Electra has a lot of funny adventures. It is especially interesting to watch a blogger who covers news from the sex industry. Lux herself makes money by leading the course "How to become a porn star in bed" for girls who want to gain confidence. At a certain stage, Julianne Moore appears in the role of the Virgin Mary - perhaps it is this event that inclines the scale in favor of watching “Electra Lux”.
The director plans to shoot and continue the story. He decided to call the new film “Women in Ecstasy”, where Elektra has to invent what to earn a living and how to ensure the future of the child.
Creativity Sebastian Gutierrez sometimes compared with the works of Pedro Almodovar, but if the characters of both directors and really charismatic, directing Gutierrez raises many questions. Firstly, it is very old-fashioned, and secondly, it is deprived of lightness, despite the abundance of successful gags. The film, in general, resembles a provincial theatrical production.
On the other hand, such a deeply authored movie is now a rarity, and it’s nice to see a sitcom, devoid of Hollywood platitudes.In addition, Electra Lux promotes optimism - unexpected sex scenes and aphorisms like "To earn, you need manners, and to get rich - character."
