Another trio culled from the ongoing softcore series from vet German producer Regina Ziegler, newest edition of “3 Erotic Tales” (there are 25 to date) puts the skein in a most favorable light, as three interesting international helmers tackle “the realm of the erotic today,” as Ziegler’s Web site puts it. As always, fests and cablers will be aroused.
“I just want to be young again,” moans about-to-be-70 pensioner Bob (character vet Victor Argo) in Amos Kollek’s “Angela.” Hungry for companionship, Bob hooks up with title trollop (Valerie Geffner), who, this being Manhattan, has a surprise or two in store. (Identical cast makes seg sound like a spinoff of Kollek’s recent Cannes entry, “Queenie in Love.”) “A film by Petr Zelenka and his friends,” reads the credit of Czech-lingo “Powers.” Helmer takes best in show with tale of a meek magician (Ivan Trojan, from David Ondricek’s “Loners”) and his newfound abilities. Eoin Moore’s “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?,” is the least successful of the trinity, as a good-looking exhibitionist couple do the horizontal bop at various points around Berlin’s rebuilt Potsdamer Platz. Tech credits are pro all around.
