               Genre: Documentary
  It is rather strange: Everyone knows it, but nobody has them. Porn movies in addition to carrying more or less serious and challenging art cinema entertainment film a shadowy existence – and yet they were from the beginning a big business. “Five minutes after 1827, the photograph and in 1894 the film was invented, there was a naked woman in front of the camera, so took it to the legendary Nudie Cutie and horror film producer David F. Friedman and companion of Herschel Gordon Lewis (Blood Feast) even to the point. Apparently, the lust of the (record-) pleasure is a human, all too human need. And what needs to rule, where they exist or can be raised with ease, good deals are not as far away as at least a heightened public interest.

Three types of people working in the porn industry as an actor, the sex counselor and former porn actress, Dr. Sharon Mitchell, founder of the 1998 # as launched () Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (short AIM ), identified: those that are hungry for glory, others for money and a third group was simply addicted to sex. Most of the problems, so we are told, there would be with those people who would promise to fame by the industry. He (
In addition to Mitchell, as well as stars and starlets in the industry such as Belladonna, Audrey Hollander and her boyfriend Otto Bauer porn actor), Mia Rose, Roxy Deville, who originally from Leipzig, Katja Kassin and very self-confident newcomer Sasha Gray which will next be seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Girlfriend Experience to get producers, directors and agents like Jim Powers, Johnni Darkko, John Stagliano and Mark Spiegler to speak. Here is what they say, often testifies expectable and in some cases, rather than a healthy degree of embellishment of a keen sense of reality. Without illusions and constructions such as those about Mark Spiegler, who pretends himself as “Daddy” of the performers he represents, would be the tough business of pleasure probably hardly endure.

Is much more interesting and illuminating the pictures are there already, is the Jens Hoffmann. And not because of their vividness and voyeurism, which they serve. Rather, the director and cinematographer Jens Hoffmann, who was nominated for his work on this film, especially for the German Camera undermined by the choice of frame and details again and again the “pornographic gaze” and so skillfully balancing on the thin line between curiosity and awareness . Instead, it shows the efforts of the male performer during the rotation breaks, “steadfast” and to keep the tired and exhausted faces of the actresses, which is clearly seen that this has little to do here with pleasure, but rather with a physical and mental torture . Enjoy what they do, have very few. Especially the business and the films will follow the laws of the market increasingly difficult to enforce at all yet to be.

As the film focuses only slightly despite the openness, the hazards faced by the porn business suspended in times of the Internet. For in times when it just about every porno film, at least piecemeal, there’s free on the Internet for downloading, the industry – whether this now regrets or not – a barrage of threats. And strives to be either in the U.S. and in Germany for state assistance. For sex, so you can hear it from the industry, is a basic human need. How hard is gerackert on the producer side for this need to make 9to5 – Days in Porn significantly. However, since we have guessed P.T. Anderson’s outstanding film “Boogie Nights” long ago.

In the end, it is (besides all the thrills and all the paraphernalia to bare skin and the mention of the whole range of popular and unusual sexual practices, the long, thanks to the ubiquity of sex in the media for Mainstream belong) to the entertainment and film industry in general. Here and there it is about the dreams, hopes and disillusionment of the starlets, the power of the producers and the difficulties in a market that has, thanks to the Internet and new media changed dramatically in recent years.

Less spectacular, but with the same approach could make films about the film industry, the publishing industry, the music business – and would probably meet with less interest. That may be regrettable. But at the same time lies in the attention, the excitement of the movie, “and an opportunity: how the adult film industry, it also sees the film and the entire media industry in general exposed to a serious transformation, the challenges posed by the Internet and the changing consumption behavior of almost the same. The current once radiant film industry who should be feted at the Cannes Festival and whose contribution to cultural diversity is undeniable, and their grubby little sister, are two sides of industry, which needs to reinvent itself again and again. And in times of freezing and hesitation, not a bad assumption.
