“BELLO” – Thought Provoking Erotic Film by Noel Alejandro | NSFW

In the film a series of unfortunate events make the protagonist Raul (Francisco Gabriel) feels like a failure. Through the unrelenting forces of fate he sees his luck reversed and once again tastes the nectar of life on his tongue.

For years Noel Alejandro has been confidently weaving the scope of human sensation and sex into captivating plots and aesthetics to create stunning films on the cusp of art and pornography. With BELLO the director delivers his take on the salvation arc with sex as the light at the end of the tunnel for Raul.

The name of the movie, BELLO, invites the audience to reimagine sex not as a sinister act the haunts society but as a beautiful and natural act which holds infinite possibilities for connection. What’s more, BELLO also offers some food for thought with its nonchalant inclusion of a woman as supporting actress: Carla Berrocal. Female presence in gay male erotica poses questions on the place of women in the genre as something more than comic relief (we all remember “Right in front of my salad!”) or ancillary to a straight-to-gay fantasy.

BELLO was filmed in Barcelona at the main residence of the producer, Luigi Esposito. Notably, it is Francisco Gabriel and Vinicius Coelho debut in the world of erotica, carrying on Noel’s tendency to cast new faces. Noel’s films are often in conversation with one another and BELLO is no exception to this, with the director hinting a connection with another film coming out next year.
