Synopsis: It’s been nearly a year since Alis Locanta released “Possessione” and fans of the original are certain to be pleased with the sequel, “Possessione 2.” Here the subject matter, the style, and even the leading man remain the same, but now Alexa Tomas takes on the role of submissive to Franck Franco’s dominant. And Locanta sets the story in motion with the same clever mix of the sinister with the sweet, the ominous with the innocent, the rough with the tender. After a dark and disquieting introduction (enhanced by a foreboding soundtrack) we’re given several different views of Alexa and Franck’s relationship.
They’re in love, they’re impulsive and spontaneous, and after Alexa makes a not so subtle suggestion, they’re obviously open to experimentation and erotic adventure. Without revealing too much detail – and robbing the viewer of the thrill of discovery – it’s safe to say that “Possession 2” is about power – relinquishing it, utilizing it, and ultimately sharing it. Alexa has chosen her role not only willingly, but eagerly. Franck uses his power not to threaten, but to create pleasure – for himself, to be sure, but for his tethered partner in equal measure.
Here the master and the slave derive the same delight from the ritual they partake in – both the possessor and the possessed achieve a similarly elevated level of arousal, and, in the end, the same level or orgasmic pleasure at the very same time. And as they kiss and hold hands in the aftermath it’s made abundantly clear that “Possession 2” is only superficially about power, and almost entirely about the pleasures that can be achieved through unconventional means.
