Diary of Love Diary of Love ~ Reviewer Rated By Rich Moreland, April 2013

A romance from Smash Pictures directed by Jim Powers and starring Presley Hart, Richie Calhoun, Lily LaBeau, Logan Pierce, Kimberly Kane, Lia Lor, and Johnny Castle.

This film carries a traditional theme — rich girl meets poor boy — but does it with a panache that showcases the sexual intensity of Presley Hart and Richie Calhoun. A romantic tale of embattled love, the film celebrates the "couples" genre. It’s not gonzo, not even close. There’s no anal and no oral thrusting to gag the girls.

Diary of Love lets the story drive the sex, not the other way round, and when the sex is on-screen, it’s carefully choreographed to reflect everyday reality.

It's intimacy as couples and women experience it, tender without being slutty. Abundant kissing, male-on-female oral, and a bit of cuddling in the afterglow highlight each encounter.

Natural bodies grace this film. Males hired for their acting skills, not their size. There is a downer note, however, for fans of fully shaven girls. Only Presley Hart is smooth as silk, indicative perhaps of an industry trend toward the well-trimmed bush.

The sex scenes are limited in number, but rich in romance. Sarah (Lily Labeau) and Fin (Logan Pierce) are sensational in a picnic setting. Lily is a stunner and worth the price of admission. Kimberly Kane and Lia Lor are two war widows who share a threesome with Noah (Richie Calhoun), an abandoned lover at that point in the tale.

Later when Allie (Presley Hart) and Noah finally get it on, sensuality splashes across the screen. Their scene is the hottest in the movie.

The story entails a summer fling that ends in the separation of Allie and Noah for a seven year period. Allie’s mother (expertly acted by Nikki Charm) sends her daughter east in hopes of improving her future. It almost works. Allie meets the wealthy Lon Hammond (Johnny Castle) and they become engaged, not without a little premarital lovemaking, of course.

From there things get tense, especially when Allie’s thoughts turn to Noah in the days before her wedding. There’s a heart-wrenching scene inside the home Noah has restored to lure Allie back into his arms.

Director Jim Powers’ artistry steps forward at this moment. Noah is on the screen’s far left, sitting in a chair with the one beside him vacant. Allie is on the far right, seated at one end of a settee. Despite the emotionally chilly atmosphere, an expansive window bathed in sunlight is the mediator reaching out to the former lovers. The implication of Powers’ shot summarizes separation, longing, and the possibility of reconciliation. Allie once again has the advantage; her love life is unbroken though she is physically distant from her husband-in-waiting back east. Noah’s is in disrepair, like the house once was. He fixed that, can he fix this?

At film’s end, the final Powers’ masterpiece frames the resolution. Allie jumps into Noah’s arms, wraps her legs around his waist, elevating her head above his. Both players are drenched in a gleaming rain. The victorious human will embraces love’s landscape—rain and sun, tears and triumph—as the final curtain descends.

The road to this climax is complicated with a car crash and a coma, making for a terrific story.

Diary of Love received several nominations at the 2013 AVN awards this past January and recently was voted Best Parody by the XRCO committee. For viewers of a good romance, this film is a winner.

Rating: Power on.
