Tales of Erotica ★★ Die Erotische Geschichten 1993 (R)

Four stories made for German TV. “The Dutch Master” finds New Yorker Teresa (Sorvino) becoming obsessed with a Vermeer-style painting at a museum. She begins to dress like the lively characters and eventually disappears into the picture itself. “The Insatiable Mrs. Kirsch” finds a vacationing writer (Shepherd) becoming fascinated by a fellow guest (Baynes), who seems to be hiding something. In “Vroom Vroom Vroom” luckless Leroy (Barboza) asks a voodoo doctor for help with the girls and winds up with a motorcycle that transforms itself into a beautiful woman when ridden. “Wet” has bathroom-fixture salesman Bruce (Howard) enticed by persistent customer Davida (Williams), who insists they both try out the showroom hot tub before she'll consider buying. 104m/C VHS, DVD .
