Intimacy and sincerity are two of the key ingredients in Andrej Lupin’s ode to romance, “With Love.” Raven-haired Lucy Li stands in the bathroom performing that most mundane of tasks, brushing her teeth. Her lover, William Zeff, watches, entranced, from the hallway before stepping into the room and joining the object of his affection. The mood is casual, relaxed, just another day of cohabitational bliss. But Zeff can’t keep his hands off of Li, and once she’s done brushing, she warms to his advances. Soon he’s on his knees making love to Lucy with his mouth and tongue. Scooping her up in his arms he then carries her to the comfort of a sofa in the living room, and here the central act of love in “With Love” takes place.
The scene – the entire film, in fact – flows at a natural, spontaneous pace, and the on-camera chemistry the twosome display lends an irresistible air of romance to the proceedings. And proceed, they do. After warming up with kisses and caressing, Lucy gets on all fours and William enters her from behind. The couple transition effortlessly into several sexual positions, each yielding additional and rapidly accumulating pleasure. Then, on her back after experiencing her own vocal climax, Li grabs Zeff’s erection and strokes it until he ejaculates explosively on her stunningly voluptuous body. In the shower, afterwards, the besotted and generous beau strokes Lucy’s lather-lubed slit and clit to a final climax. “With Love”? Absolutely. But also with tenderness, passion, affection, intensity, and pure joy.
