Storyline

The birds and the bees - without birds. A compilation of eight short films dramatizing the sex life and mating habits of eight home and garden creatures: bee, fly, mantis, dragonfly, firefly, spider, snail, and worm. In each segment, a costumed actor plays the part of an animal, offering both narration and dramatization of its body, its organs, and their functions in reproduction. Animals mate, some die in the process, and species continue. The script and actions emphasize wit and humor while facts remain straightforward. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Movies about animals have had themes of cuteness, horror, and silly. But rarely if ever have they been truly clever...until now. Isabella Rossellini's "Green Porno" details the mating rituals of various non-human fauna (mostly insects). Hilariously, I might add. Seriously, you've never seen a nature documentary like these! I should add that these shorts aren't intended for all age groups - they are a type of porno after all - but ignoring that, these are some great flicks. Truth is, insects remain probably the least understood animals of all, not to mention probably the most diverse. You're sure to love Isabella Rossellini's documentaries.

"Green Porno" wore Blue Velvet indeed.
