Swedish with no English sub titles.
Verified purchase
This DVD is in swedish throughout, with no English sub titles. Very bizarre as mostly filmed in LA and the familiar faces, from the `Adult Entertainment Industry ` That make cameo appearances, they also speak `Swedish`..

Brilliant but could have been even better
This is a brilliant film about the experience of a young Swedish porn actress in LA, Linnea (stage name Bella Cherry). Lots of nudity but it always cuts away at the last moment so as not to become real porn. The sex scenes are deliberately unsexy even though revealing. One shock scene of a porn shoot of rough brutal sex that goes wrong, and leaves Bella crying and puking. Apart from that, nothing that most people nowadays would not be familar with (the majority of people have seen porn occasionally). The routine nature of being a porn actor is shown in one BDSM shoot (which goes well, with safe word etc), where the actor in the scene during breaks in filming is very keen to show Bella his favourite smartphone game (which doesn't interest her at all).

My one criticism is that the film fails to get inside Bella's head and reveal her motivation for wanting so much to be a porn star. It's one thing drifting into porn by accident, but Bella has deliberately flown halfway around the world in order to get into porn, and is very ambitious and determined to succeed. In one scene she says to somebody that she was raped by her father but then immediately says "ha ha, it was a joke! I got you there". In a call with her mum, the mum mentions that she hated the small town where she grew up in Sweden and was determined to get out. But overall - and despite excellent acting - Bella is a bit of a cipher, and you don't really find out what makes her tick.

Also, the end of the film is a bit strange. No spoilers here, but she does something rather impetuous (not to mention very risky) which seems out of character for such a determined person who carefully plans everything.

But overall well worth seeing (but don't bother if you are seeking cheap thrills, there aren't any).
