(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- Bella Loves Jenna, a cutting-edge adult film from ClubJenna and Vivid starring Jenna Jameson and BellaDonna, has won the VSDA award for Adult Title of the Year at the Video Software Dealers Association 2004 Home Entertainment Convention.
Bella Loves Jenna was the most pre-ordered feature in recent adult film history when it was released in February of this year and continues to have "phenomenal" sales, according to its producer, Club Jenna, the studio and licensing company operated by Ms. Jameson and her director husband, Jay Grdina. Mr. Grdina directed the film using his stage name, Justin Sterling. Its distributor, Vivid Entertainment Group, predicts it will become a classic of the XXX genre.
"The VSDA award came as a total shocker to me," said Ms. Jameson. "We were up against some really great movies and I felt honored just being nominated. Winning this award is a milestone for Club Jenna and I can honestly say this one means a lot! We took a chance and did a movie that was a bit different from the norm; one where beauty meets extreme. Fortunately it worked! I would like to thank all the retailers and distributors for the continued support and confidence in our product. I'd also like to thank Vivid for their excellent distribution and their help along the way, as well as the staff at Club Jenna."
Bella Loves Jenna has been described as a stunning, surreal film featuring pulsating music, phantasmagoric costumes and makeup, and scorching, otherworldly sex scenes between the iconic Jameson as the love object of Belladonna. The all-star cast in the breakthrough title includes Sterling, TT Boy, Randy Spears, Nacho Vidal, Dirty Harry, Anthony Hardwood, Monica Sweetheart, Veronica Heart, Julie Taylor and Mya. Sterling and Jameson are executive producers.
The storyline of Bella Loves Jenna revolves around the concept that "life is heaven and the afterlife is hell." the film opens with a riveting, Daliesque sequence in which Jenna is being given the last rights as she is strapped to an electric chair, about to be executed for murder and cannibalism. As the viewer enters "Jenna's world, a dark and fantastic place where demons are made flesh," she undergoes interrogation at the hands of cruel fascist soldiers. Sinking further into her sexual madness, she pushes a gurney carrying Belladonna into a dungeon-like post-industrial space, preceded by a dwarf riding a tricycle. Jenna proves she is a life force as she makes Belladonna come alive as only she can. After reviving and bonding with Bella the scene between the two that follows is nothing short of mind-blowing. The movie then takes the viewer on a series of high impact encounters with other outlandish characters in this magical realism film.
