Unity, entertainment, and erotic movies in the cinema
Honestly, I have no idea about movies. As an amateur, I follow the Oscars, I find good films, but I can't remember them by titles, let alone by directors. I find it hard to follow debates about cinema, what has done one of the directors and how much his style has changed during the past decades. What about erotic movies? A total blank. And to see at least one, I visited the Sloga cinema.
One Saturday I was going out to see a movie. No news there; I like going to the Dvor cinema because it is the comfiest cinema by far. However, my mom wouldn't be a mom if she didn't ask me which movie we will see. I honestly didn't know. For one night only, Dvor cinema becomes Sloga cinema, like it was named in the good old times when they were screening erotic movies. I expected she will be outraged, but all she said was: "Great, we went there several times. Have a good time!”
Confused and surprised by the reaction, I left. I imagined all the possible scenarios of how it would be. Probably full of people who experienced Sloga in its golden age. Primarily a male audience full of testosterone who would barely hold up the juice while watching hot scenes. My feelings were weird, mixed, but I told myself that I could always leave if it wouldn't feel right. Upon arriving there, I expected five people and a peaceful atmosphere. How wrong I was. I couldn't even see the bar. There was full of people everywhere, young, old, couples, single people, with friends or without. Wow, so many people are interested in erotic movies? Guys bringing girls here on Valentine's Day?
People surprised me, this time in a positive way. Sloga was falling apart at the seams; posters of naked actors and actresses hanging on the walls - the scenography was subordinated to three films screened that evening - Monella, Garage Girls, and Sensuela.
As I am tuckered out quickly, I only watched the first film, Monella, by director Tinto Brass (I found this information on the internet). I could describe the movie as naughtily charming. Lola, just before the wedding, wants to taste and test her future husband. Although it is considered in rural areas that a woman must remain innocent until marriage, Lola fiercely resists and teases all her fellow citizens with her looks. In the end, everyone gets what they wanted: she gets laid, he gets married.
And with the wedding, the program in the Dvor cinema bar began after the screening. With a glass of wine in my hand, I witnessed a playful wedding party. The table was covered in food and a beautiful wedding cake. After the newlyweds' kiss, I was the first in line for a piece of cake and cookies - peaches! They were the inspiration for the name of my blog. I love them. Soft, colorful, with walnut filling.
The atmosphere was lively and relaxed. People chatted, looked at photos, and danced to the tunes of Radio Student. Like the atmosphere, the film was fun and will stay in my memory for a long time. I was expecting more pornography, hard erotica. Still, the soft erotica movie was an excellent introduction to Valentine's Eve.
While a crowd of people, already waiting for the next film to start, was gathering in front of the Sloga cinema, it was time for me to go home. I was positively surprised and grateful that, despite my prejudices, I decided to see the Sloga cinema in all its glory. I just hope I can experience something similar tomorrow.
