Never Sleep Alone (1983)
Like The Virgin And The Lover the only other film of Kemal Horulu I've watched, I've also greatly appreciated this one. What we have here is exactly what I love in an adult film production : highly erotic, romantic, with a real case scenario and sex scenes that do not seem forced. So this is a couple film... The story is about a couple (John Leslie and Tina Marie) who lives an open marriage and seem to live perfectly happy with this arrangement until the arrival of Natalie (Joanna Storm) who will jolt their strong relationship. The story at first sight can seem somewhat simplistic, but this is not the case since it takes a surprising turn in the second half and it ends unexpectedly (although we have some doubt due to the film introduction) and violently (implied, not really on screen). The acting is excellent and because of this, we have no difficulty to believe the characters of John Leslie and Tina Marie are really in love. Joanna Storm and Joey Silvera (for once) are equally credible in their roles. I have particularly enjoyed the first scene between John Leslie and Tina Marie that had made me think of Metzger because Tina Marie keeps her dress for the whole relationship and it's quite common in the films of Radley Metzger (obviously the fact it takes place with the same music used in the final of The Private Afternoon of Pamela Mann strongly help). Except for a scene with Leslie, Honey Wilder, Chelsea, Manchester and Sharon Kane who is unnecessary and adds nothing to the story the film is rather successful. This certainly gives me the desire to try the other films directed by Kemal Horulu.
